Larbert, Stenhousemuir and Torwood Community Council is working with the support of Foundation Scotland, to manage community benefit funds which will come to the local community through the Todhill Windfarm project. The funds will bring an expected £24,000 annual income to the community. In order to ensure the best use of this money and that it is used in a way that meets the needs of the area the Community Council will develop a Community Action Plan which will identify the key themes and specific projects that will be adopted within the area over the next 10 years. To assist with the research and writing the Action Plan, the Community Council received funding from Local Energy Scotland/CARES and commissioned the services of Community Enterprise.
The community consultation has informed the Research Report and based on the findings of this research, a 10 Year Community Action Plan will now be developed and distributed throughout the community. We hope to publish the Action Plan in late June/early July 2015.
Community consultation for the Research Report took place between March and May 2015. We are very grateful to everyone who kindly completed the survey and to everyone who participated in one of the open meetings and/or focus groups.
