Our 3 Main Priorities
We’ve put together a strategy outlining this vision, our priorities, aims and objectives for 2021 – 2023, and how we plan to achieve these. This strategy centres around three main priorities:
1. The Town Centre
To create an Urban Village concept that will make Kirkcaldy Town Centre a destination visit and have the features of a ’20 minute neighbourhood’ for local people. To provide and influence innovative and varied uses of space and buildings that improve the function, feel, form and flow of the Town Centre.
2. Focus on the Local Economy
To use the regeneration of Kirkcaldy Town Centre as a way of helping the wider Kirkcaldy Area economy.
3. Develop as a Community Interest Company (CIC)
To ensure that there is a constituted independent local organisation that plays an integral and influential role in Kirkcaldy Town Centre regeneration and engages with local businesses, the community and other partners.
