22 April 2015

A public ballot to decide community fund panel members will be held at the Dunnet and Canisbay Community Council meeting on Tuesday 28th April at 7.30pm in Canisbay Village Hall.

Residents over 16, living in the Dunnet & Canisbay Community Council area are welcome to attend and vote, proof of residence will be required.

The Panel will consist of nine members; four of whom are from the community council and five members from the local community. Twelve nominations have been received, and the ballot will decide which five local people will join the panel.

Eilidh Gunn, Foundation Scotland said “The Stroupster fund is worth £145,000 per annum to the area, and the role of the panel is to ensure that the funds are spent on projects which will benefit everyone in the surrounding area. The public ballot will give residents the opportunity to have their say on who should represent them on the panel.”

Foundation Scotland has been appointed by the wind farm owner, part of the BayWa r.e. global group of companies to manage the community fund. The Foundation will work with communities to help them decide how funds should be allocated, using its grant making expertise to ensure positive lasting impact.
