Welcome to the Dollar Community Development Trust Website
Dollar Community Development Trust is a volunteer-led charity aimed at making Dollar a better place to live, work, study and visit.
Our Trustees, alongside our Development Officer, work with a dedicated team of volunteers to provide services to support Dollar’s community, such as the Library and the volunteer driver service. We also run the town’s community centre – The Hive (formally the Civic Centre). See below for information on how we have responded to the Covid19 crisis.
We have been asked by Harviestoun Estate to let the community know about some work they are doing with TownRock Energy and the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde to evaluate the renewable heating potential of the flooded coal mines underneath their Farm’s land to the east of Dollar.
The plan is for this new research project to start in October 2020 with the aim of accessing and collecting data from the coal mine workings beneath the site, to inform a wider research project around the mine water geothermal resource potential.
The research team will be holding a community webinar where they will present the project outline, drilling plan, and invite questions from the audience.
This webinar will be held on 22nd September 2020, at 6.30pm – 7.30pm.
