Todhill Windfarm Community Benefit Fund Consultation

The Community Council is seeking volunteers to assist with overseeing a consultation on key local priorities for the community benefit fund which will be generated for the Larbert, Stenhousemuir & Torwood area from the 4 wind turbines at Todhill Farm.
The Community Council is being supported by Foundation Scotland and funding awarded through Local Energy Scotland to engage a consultant to assist with this process. We intend to pull together a small group of local residents and Community Councillors to oversee the work of the consultant, and to put the structure in place for the establishment of the Panel which will be formed to consider future applications to the Fund.
The Fund will be £24,000 per annum over the next 25 years bringing £600K of funding for local community projects over the lifespan of the turbines to our community.
If you are interested in assisting with this consultation, please e-mail us detailing why you are interested by Friday 21 November to lst-cc@virginmedia.com. Please share this post with anyone you know who may be interested.
