Watten Charitable Windfarm Trust
The Watten Windfarm Charitable Trust, formed in partnership between Watten Community Council and Foundation Scotland, has been set up to allow funds from different companies or donors, pledged for the benefit of the Watten community, to be managed in an efficient and effective way. The current Donors are:
Gresham House Asset Management, owner of Wathegar Wind Farm, current Fund balance £46,700.
Gresham House Asset Management, owner of Wathegar 2 Wind Farm, current Fund balance £39,280
Innogy Renewables UK Limited, developer of Bilbster Wind Farm, current Fund balance £3,974.
Other Donors may contribute in the future.
The Trust is managed by Foundation Scotland but decisions on awards are made by a local Panel of up to 12 Watten residents, including two Community Councillors, with local knowledge and interests. Panel Members serve for between two and four years.
During 2016, an independent consultant was commissioned, funded by Local Energy Scotland, to produce a Community Development Plan. This work helped to identify what the community considers to be the local priorities for investment and what it wanted to see the Watten Charitable Windfarm Trust achieve. The key findings from this exercise have led to the outcomes for the Trust.
The E.ON Camster Community Fund also covers this community council area and is administered by Foundation Scotland.
