The Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm Community Fund opens for applications on 1 December 2020. This fund has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but will return to the normal schedule in 2021.
Applications to the fund can be made from groups and projects which benefit the communities living in the community council areas of:
- Catterline, Kinneff & Dunnottar
- Stonehaven & District
Fern Community Fund, the energy company who maintains the Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm fund, sees £12,523 per year available to support local community projects during the 25-year lifetime of the wind farm.
The fund is open for applications from 1 December 2020 until 28 February 2021. A panel made up of representatives from the community council areas along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) will then meet to consider applications.
