The Meikle Carewe Wind Farm Community Fund is still open for applications from community groups until September 30.

Applications to the fund can be made from groups and projects which benefit the communities.

Applications cover the community council areas of Crathes, Drumoak and Durris; Newtonhill, Muchalls & Cammachmore; North Kincardine Rural; Portlethen and District; Stonehaven & District.

RES, the energy company who developed the Meikle Carewe Wind Farm, has established the Community Fund which will see £21012.50 per year available to support local community projects during the lifetime of the wind farm.

A panel made up of representatives from the community council areas along with a representative from RES and Kincardine & Mearns Area Partnership (KMAP) will then meet in December to consider applications.
