What is the Caithness & North Sutherland Fund?
The Caithness & North Sutherland fund was established by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd to distribute funding to community organisations for projects that will increase the attractiveness of Caithness & North Sutherland as a place to live, work and invest with particular emphasis on achieving environment, social, culture and infrastructure improvements.
The funding package was agreed as part of the development of a new disposal facility for low-level waste from decommissioning Dounreay.
The NDA will provide £4M to the fund – £1m at the start of construction in 2011 and £300,000 in 2014 and each year until 2023.
