The Meikle Carewe Wind Farm Community Fund opens for applications on 1 July 2022.

Applications to the fund can be made from not-for-profit groups and organisations based
in the following Community Council areas:

• Crathes, Drumoak and Durris
• Newtonhill, Muchalls & Cammachmore
• North Kincardine Rural
• Portlethen and District

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.

Due to an underspend in recent years, the fund total for 2022 is £45,835.60.

The fund is open for applications from 1 July 2022 to 30 September 2022. The decision-making panel, along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), will then meet to consider applications.
