Community Funding

LANGHOPE RIG COMMUNITY BENEFIT PROGRAMME

 

Hawick Community Council along with Denholm & District; Ettrick & Yarrow; Lilliesleaf, Ashkirk & Midlem and Upper Teviotdale & Borthwick Water Community Councils all signed a Community Benefit agreement which is now with Greencoat UK Wind PLC and the name of the wind farm has been changed to Langhope Rig Wind Farm Ltd and these five Community Councils are all in receipt of an annual payment for the lifetime of the wind farm project (25 years).  

 

The annual payment for 2019 will in part be used to support Hawick Community Council projects for the benefit of the town and we will operate a competitive funding round with the grant for 2019 whereby groups are invited to apply for a grant and decisions will be made by the Community Council as to which projects will be supported subject to the approved scoring matrix.

 


 Applications have been received  and decisions about the successful applications will be decided as soon as the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, which will allow us to meet and follow the procedure in place too process the applications.

 Any queries can be emailed to over50s@tiscali.co.uk or by phoning Marion Short on 07549853549
