Planning and Shaping our Future in the East Neuk

We support communities in East Neuk and Landward area of Fife to prepare community action plans (CAP) and to work together in the preparation of a long term vision and strategy for the East Neuk.

One of the main achievements of the CAP is the commitment of all sectors to a joint long-term vision, strategy and area-based approach. This is a genuine community-led initiative with the wider partnership responding to the community action plans as they are developed. The support, guidance and resources provided by the ENCAP partnership offer communities the opportunity to explore, organise and create their own vision of what they want for their place. The benefits of creating these types of community action plans are starting to be recognised widely within the public and community sectors in terms of supporting and developing community empowerment.

The toolkit prepared by STAR Development Group outlines the process and resources needed to carry out a programme of community action planning in the East Neuk of Fife.

‘Advice, guidance and practical help was a great asset in allowing us to deliver the report for the local community.’ Stuart Bridges, St Monans and Abercrombie CAP Committee
