Statement from the University of St Andrews.
The University of St Andrews is delighted to confirm that it has signed a contract to purchase the former Curtis Fine Papers Papermill Site at Guardbridge.
At this stage we are considering a variety of mixed use options including renewable energy, housing, community use, accommodation for spin-out companies and additional space for University schools and service units.
Our hope is that we can bring life back to this important industrial site, give it a sustainable future and where possible create jobs and new employment opportunities.
We aim to develop our plans in close consultation with the community and local interest groups and have made initial contact with representatives of Guardbridge Community Council.
Once the sale has been formally concluded we hope to be able to give more detail about possible developments and timescales.
