Dumfriesshire East Community Benefit Group – Community Consultation
As you may know, the Dumfriesshire East Community Benefit Group has been formed to receive and distribute community benefit funding on behalf of communities and areas directly surrounding the Ewe Hill Windfarm.
The total amount of funding expected over the lifetime of this windfarm will be over £1.7 million for the Ewe Hill 6 Fund and over £4.6 million for the Ewe Hill 16 Fund.
DECBG are strongly concerned that this funding is used fairly and in ways and for projects that local people recognise and understand as being what they want to see happen in their areas.
With this intention in mind DECBG have commissioned an extensive consultation (conducted by Creetown Initiative) to gauge what local people feel about this funding, what opportunities it presents, and what projects they would like to see it support.
The first stage in this consultation was through ‘one-to-one’ conversations held in the halls in Boreland, Corrie and Tundergarth. From these initial conversations, ideas will help to structure the questionnaires and public meetings which will take the process through to an overall and agreed Plan.
The next stage is a questionnaire for completion which will be posted to all households in the area during February.
