Cumnock & Doon Valley Minerals Trust
The administration of the Trust has been taken over by Democratic Services.
The Trust was established by a charitable trust deed in order to hold funds contributed to the Trust and apply them for the benefit or furtherance of the charitable provisions of the Trust which is to offset the adverse affects caused within the former District of Cumnock and Doon Valley by shallow mining operations.
The Trust's objectives are to support projects in the former local government area of Cumnock and Doon Valley which would benefit communities within that area which have been and continue to be adversely affected by the opencast mining industry.
The policies adopted in furtherance of these objects are to apply trust funds to provide leisure and environmental improvements which help compensate communities for the disturbance caused by opencast mining activity.
