A Collaborative Project

Always mindful of the impact on the local community, St Andrews West LLP is now looking to recommence earlier conversations with the community and key stakeholders to advance the preparation of a masterplan for St Andrews West. To do so, we will be actively engaging with residents and other stakeholders throughout the process by holding public exhibitions where the local community help shape the masterplan and PPP application which will be submitted to Fife Council in Summer 2017.
