WDCC Boyndie Windfarm Community Fund

Annual income for this fund originates from Falck Renewables and results from the electricity generating capacity of Boyndie Windfarm. The money is to be administered by Whitehills & District Community Council and held in a bank account separate from that organisation’s other funds.

An open meeting will be held annually, or more frequently if the need arises, chaired by the Community Council Chairman, at which a ‘broad brush’ plan will be decided for spending or dispersing money over the coming year. A panel of two Community Councillors, elected annually by their peers, will carry out the detailed administration of the money, in accordance with this plan.

Departure from the annual plan would have to be agreed by majority vote at a full Community Council meeting. There is no reason why all the money received by the fund has to be spent that year. A decision to withhold some or all of the money in order to facilitate a larger project than can be financed from a single year of income, is acceptable. Approved applications should be drawn down within 12 months of date of approval.
