A building repair grant scheme is now launched in Cupar, operated by Fife Council and Fife Historic Buildings Trust and core funded jointly by Historic Scotland, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Fife Council as part of the Cupar Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) and Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) programme 

A grant pot of approximately ¬£560,000 is available for privately owned properties, including local businesses, within a designated area at the heart of the Cupar Conservation Area. Grants of up to ¬£25,000 can support sensitive repairs to historic buildings using traditional materials and skills, as well as the reinstatement of appropriate architectural details including improvements to historic shop fronts. A range of activities will be delivered in parallel with the grant scheme, including traditional skills training for local contractors, events and training for homeowners, and free energy efficiency audits for historic properties within the Cupar Conservation Area.

For more information, you can download the leaflet HERE or alternatively there will be a drop in event at the County Buildings in Cupar on Wednesday 27 May 2015 from 3pm to 7pm where you can speak to a member of the team.
