CDT’s projects bring together community activity, digital connectivity, and physical regeneration. Cupar has been very fortunate that several independent projects organised by others have coincided with CDT’s efforts to deliver its objectives.
An archaeological dig on Cupar’s Moot Hill in October 2018 found evidence of bronze age occupation; St Andrews University’s Special Collections Department catalogued the archives of the Royal Burgh of Cupar from 1346 to 1975; and the substantial, five-year, project to improve Cupar’s town centre, funded by a Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme combined with a Town Centre Heritage Initiative funding provided a welcome restoration of much of the town centre, importantly the municipal heritage of St Catherine Street and the key corner site of the former Burgh Chambers, now available as a high-quality holiday let. CDT, Cupar Heritage, the Fife Family History Society and others have supported these projects, including providing volunteers for the first two.
CDT’s current projects are a major digitally based signage and interpretation project, a Children’s Day for the area’s primary school children to celebrate the area’s heritage in the Old Scots language and the lives of two famous sixteenth century Cupar authors, and the re-development, with partners, of the area which CDT has labelled “Inner Court”, namely the area behind Crossgate and Bonnygate, including the infamous “Gap Site”.
