Cupar

Cupar is a town, previous royal burgh as well as parish in Fife, Scotland. It lies between Dundee and also Glenrothes. According to a 2011 population estimate, Cupar had a population around 9,000, making it the 9th largest settlement in Fife, as well as the civil parish a population of 11,183 (in 2011). It is the historical county town of Fife, although the council now sits at Glenrothes. The town is thought to have actually expanded around the site of Cupar Castle, which was the seat of the constable and was possessed by the earls of Fife. The location came to be a centre for judiciary as the region of Fife and as a market town providing for both cattle and also sheep. In the direction of the latter stages of the 13th century, the burgh ended up being the site of a setting up of the 3 estates - clergy, nobility as well as burgesses - organised by Alexander III in 1276 as a precursor of the Parliament of Scotland. Although composed details of a charter for the contemporary town was shed, evidence suggested that this existed as one of the many properties possessed by the Earls of Fife by 1294. Throughout the center of the 14th century, the burgh began to pay customizeds on gross incomes, which most likely suggested that royal burgh standing was approved at some time in between 1294 as well as 1328. The earliest document, describing the royal burgh, was a give by Robert II in 1381 to offer a port at Guardbridge on the River Eden to help improve trade with Flanders. This grant was formally acknowledged by James II in 1428.

FAQs

What are the main benefits of solar panels?

Solar panels provide an alternative to paying expensive National Grid energy rates, so primarily their first major benefit is helping to reduce bills. Solar PV panels will produce free electricity, whilst solar thermal panels generate heat for hot water and space heating. There are also payment incentives known as the Feed-in Tariff scheme (FITs) (for solar PV) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (for solar thermal) which guarantee a tax-free income for 20 years.

do you need planning permission for solar panels?

In a similar way to other major home improvement projects, some specific requirements must be met to allow for the installation of solar panels. The main reason why these standards and regulations were established is to minimize the risk of the solar system becoming an issue or potential hazard in the unforeseeable future. So if you’re thinking about buying and fitting new solar panels, you’ll probably want to know whether or not you’ll require to submit a planning permission application for approval before you can proceed.

Generally, solar panels are covered under what’s called “Permitted Development” which gives you the freedom to install your solar panels without having to apply for a planning permission. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. These exceptions include if your house is a listed building or if your house is located within a conservation area. In these exceptional cases, it’s possible that you’ll need to apply for a planning permission, but this will largely depend on the discretion of your Local Planning Authority. What’s more? Solar panels are usually subjected to normal building regulations which includes examining the roof to make sure that it can support the additional weight. You can call in a MCS certified installer to carry out this check for you.

In order to install your solar PV on your roof, you must follow these guidelines:

✓ Your solar panels shouldn’t go beyond the highest point of the roof (excluding chimneys).

✓ The solar panels shouldn’t project beyond 200mm off the roof’s edge.

✓ The solar panels should be removed once they’re no longer used to produce electricity

✓ The solar panels should be installed such that the area and building’s appearance change is minimized.

What are the benefits of installing solar panels?

Not only will you reduce your electricity bill by generating your own electricity with solar panels, but you can also earn money through the SEG which is offered by large energy suppliers. They’ll pay you for the electricity you export back to the grid. You’ll also reduce your carbon footprint, lessening your impact on the environment.

How much can I save on my electricity bill?

The more you’re at home during the day, the more you can save on your electricity bill, since solar panels generate electricity during the day. The Feed-in Tariff scheme (FITs) ended in March 2019, but the new Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) pays you, via your energy supplier, for the electricity you export back to the grid. With the savings involved in generating your own electricity and SEG payments, you can expect to save up to £390 per year on your electricity bill.
