Communities in Fife can create their own local plans in a new initiative

Bill Lindsay, service manager, policy and place, said: “Fife Council will not be involved in writing Local Place Plans but can support community groups.

“This includes signposting groups to information and practical help.

“We can also provide further advice on the process and requirements for Local Place Plans.”

The Scottish Government has provided guidance for both communities and planning authorities

The council is urging any community body interested in creating a Local Place Plan to take a short survey

Plans should be submitted by the end of October 2023.
