Kype Muir Community Fund

Kype Muir Community Fund

Banks Renewables delivers Community Funds

This new fund is available to community groups across Strathaven and Glassford to help fund eligible projects. We hope in the first year of the fund to distribute to as wide a section of our community as possible. The Community Consultation Summary and Action Plan outlines the priority areas identified from the community consultation carried out in 2018 across our community. This document was reviewed in 2022 to ensure it remains relevant to support the ongoing fund. Projects added include provision of CCTV in Strathaven Town Centre.

Strathaven and Glassford Community Council forms part of the Kype Muir Community Panel, which oversees the Fund. Funding will be linked to projects in the Community Consultation Summary and Action Plan, with the document
available from by clicking here
