Dunfermline has an extraordinary heritage, a legacy from the past which can help point the way to future development. Design Dunfermline 2018 is your opportunity to help shape how our medieval town centre could develop over the next 10 years.

Taking inspiration from our unique heritage – what are your ideas and aspirations for the town?

Over a period of 4 days, a team of experts will work with us to articulate those ambitions and create a guide for future developments.

Your contribution is vital, so please complete our Dunfermline survey and the results will inform the event and the final report

Check our social media  to leave your comments and ideas.

Even better, if you can come along to some of the events, discussions and workshops it would be great to see you!

All are welcome but numbers are limited. You can book tickets to the events at Eventbrite, Design Dunfermline 2018

This process of a panel of experts getting input from the local community to create a framework for future development has been carried out in a number of places in Scotland. In Prestwick, they identified a wish to save the old cinema, in Tranent a programme of conservation work. Both of these have attracted investment and are now going ahead.

Part of the funding we have will allow us to identify at least one project in Dunfermline and start working on how it could be developed. This in turn will be useful to attract more funding to carry out the work.

Taking inspiration from our heritage, what would you most like to see developed in Dunfermline – perhaps a building or an open space? Your vote counts so get involved!

 


The Dunfermline Heritage Partnership has secured funding to deliver a three year programme of work which uses our heritage to inspire future growth. This project is one of many and just the beginning!

With over £300,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Scottish Government, the total funding package for the three years, including partner contributions, amounts to £444,410. This will be spent on a number of different projects in and around Dunfermline.
