Volunteers sought for wind farm fund panel

15 October 2018

Residents living in the Donside Community Council areas of Kildrummy, Lumsden and Towie, are being sought to be part of the local community panel which decides on how a community fund supplied by a wind farm operator should be distributed. The fund is provided by Greencoat UK in connection with its Kildrummy Wind Farm. The level of funding for 2018 is £25,616, and the fund is administered by Foundation Scotland.

The eight member panel consists of two representatives from each of the three communities, plus two Donside Community Council representatives. One of the current representatives from each of the three communities is due to retire, so there are three places available to be filled.

Interested individuals can download a role profile and a nomination form at http://www.foundationscotland.org.uk/programmes/kildrummy/ where further information about the fund is available. You can also contact the Fund Manager Iain Catto on 0791 275 9525 or email iainc@foundationscotland.org.uk from whom paper copies of the nomination form can be obtained.

Nomination forms should be submitted, signed by two other community members who are not related to the nominee, to Foundation Scotland by 9th November 2018. An election will be held if more than one nomination is received from any of the three areas.

Retiring Panel member Jamie Mayo said: “ “I have been a member of the Panel since it started in 2013, and it has been enjoyable working with other local people to ensure that the money from the Kildrummy wind farm is spent wisely to benefit the local area. I would encourage others to apply to be part of the Panel, as you do feel that you are helping to make a difference.”
