Community Action Plans
Many of the communities supported by Local Energy Scotland to access community benefit funding have produced Community Action Plans to help work out the priorities for using this funding to improve their communities.
“The extensive community engagement process funded by CARES has given the Finderne Development Trust a strong direction of travel. We can now progress with confidence that the community benefit funding we receive from the developers of the Logie Wind Farm, Hill of Glaschyle Renewables LLP, will address the right priorities for our rural community. From assisting local businesses to fund rural-based apprenticeships to developing key recreational routes, we aim to deliver long term legacy projects for our Finderne communities.” Chris Piper, Chair, Finderne Development Trust
