The IHR comprises a programme of four linked heritage projects for Inverkeithing, that aim to engage the community in the heritage regeneration of their town, from 2019 –2024:

3.  Building Repair Grant Scheme – targeted repairs and improvements to listed and traditional buildings in the Conservation Area (both homes and businesses).

4. Training & Activity programme: for both adults & children to learn about the town’s heritage and gain new skills to help conserve it. Also traditional building skills & best practice – for contractors, advisers and owners.

This information will be used to communicate with you and to pass on any relevant information, such as project updates. This will usually be sent via email bulletin but may be via post if appropriate.  It will not be disclosed to a third party without your permission.

Your personal information in relation to third party grants will be used to process applications for grant, draw up grant contracts and make grant payments.
