Ms Miler added: “The Kincardine project demonstrates well what could be achieved by adopting a co-design process. The scheme delivers a people-first approach to design following extensive involvement from the local community, who have been actively engaged since 2017, creating safe, attractive, and engaging spaces in the heart of the town.

“Being shortlisted in the Scottish Design Awards is recognition of our approach to community-led design and collaboration to create a great place and spaces for everyone.”

The project's overall masterplan

A revitalised and sustainable high street that will enhance commercial activity and a new link between the High Street and the long-distance Fife Coast route will utilise existing focal points within and around the town. The project also demonstrates a strong desire to enhance the commercial activity on the High Street and make it a more people-friendly space.

Judging will take place by a panel of experts and winners will be announced at the Scottish Design Awards ceremony on July 15.
