A CUPAR business centre is open for business and is already attracting success. Westport Business Centre in Cupar was officially opened this week by Fife Council Depute Leader and Planning and Business spokesperson Councillor Lesley Laird.
The Centre has been created through the transformation of a listed building in Cupar and is made up of five offices for businesses as well as affordable housing and additional facilities for the community.
It is part of a development which has been jointly funded by Fife Council Housing and Neighbourhood Services, Building Services and Kingdom Housing.
Since the handover in October 2013, three out of the five offices have already been leased. Occupants are all local businesses who provide services and support to the local community and include:
• Circles Network; a registered charitable organisation in Scotland providing a range of advocacy support within the Kingdom of Fife
• Kingdom Wellness Hub; providing health active lifestyle coaching and support
• Business Gateway Fife; who provide Business Support throughout Fife.
Councillor Lesley Laird said: “It was great to officially open the Centre and meet the businesses who are already getting the benefit of this fantastic facility.
“The amount of office space available to let in this part of Fife was historically very low so Fife Council’s investment here is really making the difference to the local business community and helping give the local economy a boost too. “I hope the Westport Business Centre will continue to thrive in the future.”
