Views invited to support development of Fife's Historic Environment Strategy
Fife has a diverse and important range of historic environment assets, from Neolithic sites to industrial heritage and a range of individuals and organisations who champion them or are interested in them. These historic assets and their contextual story are the fabric of Fife’s unique cultural identity, forging connections between Fife’s people and the places they live and visit.
To protect and enhance Fife’s historic environment, Fife Council Planning Services and Economy, Tourism & Town Centres team, in partnership with Fife Historic Buildings Trust (FHBT), are developing a Historic Environment Strategy. The strategy will also evaluate the impact and benefits of Fife’s historic environment and provide a framework for making the best use of our heritage in the future. The strategy will set out the case for the protection and enhancement of Fife’s historic environment, as well as identifying future historic environment investment and intervention priorities for Fife Council and Fife Historic Buildings Trust.
Fife Council (in collaboration with FHBT) have commissioned Community Enterprise and Northlight Heritage to carry out independent research, community consultation and an impact assessment to support the Historic Environment Strategy. They are seeking the views of people interested in Fife’s historic environment, as well as local organisations and groups to help produce a strategy that is ambitious and achievable and acts as a catalyst for action.
The survey will be open until 25 March and can be accessed here.
If you have any other comments or would be interested in having a phone/virtual meeting to discuss views in more detail, please contact [email protected].
