The Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm Community Fund is now open for applications from groups and projects which benefit the communities living in the following Community Council areas:

  • Arbuthnott
  • Catterline, Kinneff and Dunnottar

Fern Community Funds, the energy company who maintains the Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm fund, will support local community projects during the 25-year lifetime of the wind farm. This year there is £13,150.57 available for distribution.

A panel made up of representatives from the Community Council areas along with a representative (non-voting) from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) will then meet to consider the applications.
