The Background to the Inner Court
The older buildings in Cupar’s town centre date from the several periods of the town’s history of economic growth. On the main streets, buildings were adapted as the local economy grew and on occasion they were re-placed. As the local economy evolved, land to the rear of the main streets was built upon to accommodate stables, wash-houses and industries which supported the primary activities of the main street buildings. However, this ‘cheek-by- jowl’ development came to an end as the town expanded during the last century. Goods could be transported easily from industrial estates and tighter building standards made the older back-buildings obsolete. Often they fell derelict as no further lasting demand was shown in such property. Clearance and re-development became the solution but the back- land location was not commercially attractive.
It is intended that a planning application for Planning in Principle will be submitted to Fife Council on a joint basis by Kingdom Housing Association and the Development Trust. The application will be the subject of further public consultation.
