Businesses are fundamental to the sustainability of any community. In Crail, many of those businesses revolve around tourism, which – despite Crail’s obvious assets of natural and built heritage – is seasonal and therefore economically fragile.
The harbour is also an important local economic driver, being an active fishing harbour but also oﬀering great opportunities for increased use (including tourism) with the right investment. Carefully targeted investment in infrastructure, communications and marketing could help unlock a range of new private and social enterprises opportunities helping grow Crail’s business sector, visitor economy and the year-round business proposition.
More jobs are vital if more homes are to be built.
Invest in harbour for fishing, marine activity and visitors.
More business premises, especially in the town centre.
Better broadband and mobile signals.
Visitor facilities – paths, cycling, parking.
Crail Community Partnership trustees have worked with youth within the community to create Crail.Info. This website is a one stop shop for the community, collating information about local business and services aswell as community groups, events in our village and latest news.
