The development trust has been working on several projects since it's establishment in 2008. Six projects are being progressed and are at different stages:
Community Powerdown - a carbon reduction project employing 1 ft project officer, providing advice and support on renewables, energy efficiency and green living. Projects investigating tidal energy, biodiesel, reducing food miles have also been progressed. Project finishes on 31st March but funding for a stage 2 project employing 4 people has been applied for.
Community owned self storage facility - feasibility, market research and business plan completed now looking for funds and a suitable site.
Campbeltown Town Hall - working group formed to try to find a viable use for the hall to keep it open. Interested volunteers are needed for this project.
Community Plan - Funding secured to progress a community plan for the South Kintyre area. This project will engage with many members of the community to gather views and opinions that will form the basis of a community action plan for the coming years.
Argyll Renewable Communities - SKDT are responsible for the dissemination of information to the local area from the ARC project, which is looking at the social and economic impacts of the Kintyre, Islay and Tiree offshore windfarms. Stage 2 report is about to be issued and a public event is planned.
Income Generation - The trust wish to become less relient on grant funding and have been exploring various avenues for generating our own income as well as providing community benefit. Investigations are being carried out into renewable energy projects as well as several other avenues.
