The energy company RES has established a community fund which will see more than £25,000 available to support local community projects every year during the lifetime of the Meikle Carewe Wind Farm. The fund is administered by Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) and managed by a Decision Making Panel made up of representatives from the local Community Councils.
The fund is open for applications from 1 July to 30 September 2019. The Decision Making Panel, along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), will then meet in November to consider applications.
