The St Andrews and East Fife Local Plan was formally adopted on 5th October 2012, replacing the Adopted St Andrews Area Local Plan (1996). The St Andrews Settlement Plan appears at page 139 of the "Written Statement".

The Community Council participated fully in the consultations that were held on the various versions of the Plan since 2005, but the views of the town went largely unheeded. In November 2009 we issued a newsletter on the subject, and in January 2010 submitted a detailed response to the proposed Local Plan. We also submitted a statement for the Public Hearing in St Andrews in October 2011, together with comments on the two of the other parties' statements.
