One of the Priority Action Items in the Crail Local Place Plan was to: Create a multi-purpose community facility in Community Hall
Fife Council does not have the funds to improve the facilities in the Community Hall but community ownership (by a charity) provides the opportunity to apply for funding from trusts and organisations like the National Lottery.
On the 27th June 2019 Crail Community Partnership (CCP) applied to Fife Council to have the Community Hall transferred into Crail community ownership. This led to an application to the Scottish Land Fund (SLF) which supports charities working on community asset transfer & ownership. In late December the SLF approved CCPs Stage One application and is providing £8,424 so that we can create a Business Plan that would describe how Crail could develop and run a successful Community Hall.
The process for creating the Business Plan will take 2 to 3 months, and will involve a lot of community consultation. Further details on the consultation process will be explained in future Crail Matters articles. But if you would like to ensure that you will be part of the consultation please send your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org
