Local residents wanted to represent communities on decision making panel
11th April 2014
Two vacancies have arisen for community representatives to serve on a locally elected panel making decisions about funding from the E.ON Camster Community Fund; one representative is sought from the Watten Community Council area and one from the Tannach & District Community Council area.
This is an opportunity to help ensure the Fund continues to be spent on projects that provide a real benefit to local communities.
Foundation Scotland has been appointed by the wind farm operator, E.ON, to administer the Community Fund. The Foundation works with communities local to the wind farm site to help them decide how funds should be allocated, using its grant-making expertise to ensure positive long lasting impact.
The two new panel members will work alongside existing community representatives from Watten and Tannach & District – and community representatives from the Latheron, Lybster and Clyth Community Council area.
In total, there are four panel members from each of the three Community Council areas serving on the decision making panel. The panel meets approximately four times a year.
You can download a panel member role profile to find out more about what’s involved in being a panel member and a nomination form from the Foundation Scotland website at www.foundationscotland.org.uk/camster
Alternatively you can collect a Watten nomination form from Watten Post Office, or a Tannach & District nomination form from the Community Council Secretary; The Smiddy Inn, Thrumster; or online at www.tannachanddistrict.org
Nomination forms must be completed and returned to Foundation Scotland by 5pm on Friday 2 May.
