Crail has formed the Crail Community Partnership to take their local action plan forward with the support of more or less every community group in Crail through the Charrette process.
Crail Community Partnership has presented the newly produced plan but now the hard work starts. Challenges ahead include incorporating up to 350 new houses that are planned to be built to the north of Crail as part of the Fife regional plan. Crailers have said clearly they are up for this challenge, to make a viable and sustainable Crail for the future.
Crail Community Partnership is charged with taking forward delivery of the outcomes. The Partnership has now been awarded official charity registration by OSCR, the charity regulator. We are also now registered with DTAS (Development Trust Association Scotland)
