Community Assets Transfer

Derek Gray‎ to Tayport Community Council

I am pleased to report that 20 local residents (including some representing local groups/organisations) plus our three Councillors and officers from Fife Council, attended the meeting to discuss interest in setting up a working group to explore the future of the Burgh Chambers and Gregory Hall.

Lots of very relevant questions were asked and the outcome was that ten people have signed up to be part of the working group which will have its first meeting on either Tuesday 19th or Tuesday 26th September 2017 (date to be confirmed), 7.00pm at the Burgh Chambers. If anyone else would wish to join the working group, please contact me so I can advise which date is finally agreed – dek.gray@gmail.com, tel 07539 932018

I expect an early priority of the working group will be to identify how best to keep the community updated on the progress it is making.

Thank you to everyone for their interest and contributions and to Janice Laird, Fife Council’s Community Manager for North East Fife Area for her input.
