As part of his course work for his MSc degree at Dundee University, Robert Wills carried out a Situational Analysis of Burntisland. The project was completed in November 2015. The resulting paper, which runs to 34 pages, provides the most comprehensive picture of the town to be produced in recent years. It has been deservedly praised by community leaders in Burntisland. Robert has kindly agreed to make it publicly available via this website. The contents of the paper are shown in the table below.
