Local residents wanted to represent Earn area on decision making Panel

02 June 2017

A vacancy has arisen for people living in the Earn area to serve on Innogy Renewables UK (Ltd) Lochelbank Community Fund Panel.  This locally appointed Panel makes decisions about awards from the Fund, which exists to benefit the Earn and Glenfarg community council areas.

This is an opportunity to help ensure the Fund continues to be spent on projects that provide real benefit to those communities.

The Panel meets three times a year to advise the fund administrator, Foundation Scotland, on grants awards from the fund. Every three years the Panel also conducts a review of the Fund, including its grant-making strategy.

Foundation Scotland was appointed by the wind farm operator, Innogy Renewables UK Limited, to administer the Community Fund in 2011. The Foundation is an independent charity that works with communities local to the wind farm site to help them decide how funds should be allocated so as to ensure positive long lasting impact.

In total, the Panel comprises three members from each of the two Community Council areas; two are community representatives (serving between 1 and 3 years) and one is a Community Councillor. The Panel member being sought will work alongside the existing two representatives for the Earn area as well as the three Glenfarg representatives.
