East Lammermuir Community Council is now adminstering the allocation of funding for local community projects from the operators of the Crystal Rig wind farms. This currently amounts to £80,000 per year, and will be increased in line with inflation each year for the next 25 years. Elsewhere on this site you will find a report on the workshop we held to decide on the criteria to be used in allocating funds – some of which are specified by the company.
The links below – “windfarm application form” – will take you to some brief notes for applicants and an application form that all applicants are required to complete and submit to the Community Council treasurer.
