Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust (KoSDT) was established in 2011 to serve the districts of Ardgay and Creich in East Sutherland. The Trust was set up to counteract the economic decline that had occurred in the area following the opening of the Dornoch Bridge in the early 1990’s which had diverted traffic away from the area and resulted in the closure of local businesses.
The aim of the Trust is to ensure that long-term, sustainable benefits are achieved throughout the community and the Kyle of Sutherland area. The Trust focuses on how best to utilise funding from local wind farms and renewable energy projects, while ensuring all match funding opportunities are identified and secured.
Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust aims to develop projects that:
Help maintain a strong sense of place
Reduce social isolation and promote health and wellbeing for residents
Build a confident, resilient community
Make a difference to the lives of local people
Oversee the implementation of the Local Development Plan
Support other local organisations with their projects
