Community Benefit Funding meeting

MONDAY 10 AUGUST 2015 at 7.30pm in the STRATHDEARN HALL

For the past two year Eneco has worked closely with both community councils to discuss the ‘development’ of the ‘Moy Community Benefit Company’ which will have both community councils represented on the decision making panel alongside representatives from the local communities.

At the Moy Wind Farm Community Benefit Working Group meeting on 24 February it was ‘ agreed to move the process forward (continuing with the Joint Company) given the work that has gone into the benefit model over the last two years”

In May 2015, Eneco received correspondence stating that there was a desire to split the community benefit fund and for the Strathnairn Community Benefit Company (set up by npower) to administer the Strathnairn portion of the fund. This would be a 21.5/78.5 split with Strathdearn receiving the larger share.

On 12 May Guy Madgwick and Zoisa Walton of Eneco met with Vivian Roden of Strathdearn Community Council and Isobel McQueer of Strathnairn Community Council, following which the following statement was issued by Guy Madgwick:

“We met with representatives from Strathdearn and Strathnairn today, 12 May. On discussions we have identified there is no winning solution for all and therefore given the situation Eneco reverts to the Moy community benefit model. This will be reviewed after a two year period. We would like to invite four representatives from Strathdearn and four from the Strathnairn area to continue to participate within the working group for the Moy community benefit model. As previously stated, we always wish to carry out what the community wants, however, as both community councils cannot agree on a model we now feel that we have to take that decision. Eneco would like to thank all those involved”
