PHASE 1 - VISIONING
The charrette, which was initiated by Crail Community Council and Crail Preservation Society, focused on the creation of a vision for what people want for Crail in the future and the ideas and actions that can help make it happen. A charrette workshop was held in Crail Community Hall on the 12th of May 2018 and was facilitated by 7N Architects and Nick Wright Planning. Over 100 people attended, which was a high turnout for such an event, reﬂecting how involved and concerned people feel about their community.'
The purpose of the visioning charrette was to oﬀer the community of Crail the opportunity to appraise its current situation and devise a vision for the next 20-30 years that can make the most of its strengths and opportunities, re-establishing a collective eﬀort to make it an even better place.
The charrette is enabling the development of a vision for Crail’s future. Clear consensus emerged that the community needs a plan to help shape and focus energy for initiatives, projects, future development and government policy – in order to tackle Crail’s challenges of fragile businesses and services, retaining families & young people, an ageing population, and shaping future development.
