Cupar Town Centre Heritage Project wants your feedback
The five-year Cupar Conservation Area Regeneration/Townscape Heritage Initiative project will end in March 2019. This project has seen approximately £7m invested in Cupar’s historic properties and streets to support the town’s future. This has included the redevelopment of the Burgh Chambers and parts of the County Buildings, as well as improvements to Speedie’s and Steele’s Closes. A wide range of training and heritage related activities have also been delivered and private sector owners have benefited from grant assistance to improve their properties. The project is funded by Historic Environment Scotland (£1m via its Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme) and the Heritage Lottery Fund (£550,000 via its Townscape Heritage Initiative). Private owners have also invested and Fife Council has provided funding.
As part of the overall evaluation of the project, Fife Council and Fife Historic Buildings Trust would very much welcome feedback from local people, and local businesses.
