The Company was set up early in 2006 to adminster the first community benefit funds available from a wind farm site in South Ayrshire. The company is limited by guarantee, run by representative directors from the community council areas of Barr, Dailly, Pinmore and Pinwherry. It is also a partnership with Scottish and Southern Energy, the windfarm owners, and South Ayrshire Council.
Ailsa Horizons has been providing secretariat support to the company since March 2007. During that period HHCBF has obtained charitable status to reduce its tax liabilities, revamped its application forms and guidance to applicants, and raised its profile in the local community.
