Dunadd Community Council – meeting to discuss windfarm Community Benefits/ Shared Ownership schemes

When:  Thursday 18th May 2023

Where: Ford Village Hall

Time:    6pm – 7pm

Dunadd Community Council have been discussing Community Benefit/ Shared Ownership schemes that can come from windfarm developments.  These discussions have focussed on ensuring that funds are used equitably.

As a result of discussions Dunadd Community Enterprise have offered to manage the receipt of applications, conduct due diligence and make recommendations to a separate decision making body made up of residents on proposals.  This is the process that is used in Tarbert & Skipness.  Other options could be to have the funds held by an organisation like Foundation Scotland.

We would like to invite all residents of Dunadd (Kilmichael, Kilmartin, Slockavullin, Ford and the environs) along to get views on how Community Funds should be managed.  This is purely an information gathering session. 

If you are unable to attend the meeting please email any feedback to secretary@dunaddcc.org.
