Tayport Community Trusts plans to bring a multi-faceted Community Hub to the town have received a boost, by being moved forward to Stage 2 of an application process to the Big Lottery’s Growing Community Assets fund. This application for £1million is a large slice of the initial £3.5million needed to get this project up and running.
Although being moved to Stage 2 and the chance to apply for initial Development Funding is a positive step, it doesn’t guarantee that the funding will be received. But it opens up the way for the Trust to recommission a design team and to move to gaining formal permission for the plans. These plans involve redeveloping the former Abertay Works site on the Shanwell Road that has lain derelict for 20 years.
There is a lot to do over the next 12 months before submitting the Stage 2 application, but the Trustees, along with their Development Officer, are committed to making this work for the benefit of everyone in and around Tayport. More information can be found at www.TayportCT.org.uk
To help this the preparations, the Trust have prepared a short survey which is available through this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/333RQVF
Completing it will only take a couple of minutes and will really help inform the future of this facility that will be for the benefit of everyone in Tayport.
