Cupar Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme and Townscape Heritage Initiative

Fife Council, in partnership with Fife Historic Buildings Trust, is investing over £7million in the historic properties and streets of Cupar. Historic Environment Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund have made awards totaling £1.5million to establish the Cupar CARS/THI programme which began its work in April 2014.  

The overall Cupar CARS/THI programme has elements including refurbishment of the west wing of the County Buildings, a Building Repair Grants Scheme, works to Cupar’s streets and closes, training and apprenticeships, and the Bonnygate Gap Site Development. A key building for the five-year programme is the Burgh Chambers where a new use is required as well as significant refurbishment.

Throughout the CARS and THI programme information will be made available through the local press, drop-in events and online to provide news of progress. Building owners will have access to specific advice on looking after historic properties through leaflets and online information and the Building Repair Grant Scheme will provide grant support for sensitive repairs to historic buildings.

You can find out more here about the Cupar Building Repair Grant Scheme.
