Kirkcaldy Waterfront - time to have your say

Wed 26 Sep, 2018

Plans for Kirkcaldy Waterfront

One of Kirkcaldy’s greatest assets is our waterfront location and the stunning views over the Forth.

Plans to improve connections between the High Street and the waterfront include:

Locals want leisure, not parking

Fri 21 Sep, 2018

A recent survey found that improving leisure facilities on Kirkcaldy Prom was more important to local residents than creating more parking.

Kirkcaldy Prom is widely acknowledged as the town’s greatest potential asset – however, an asset that is largely unrealised.  With the plan to narrow the road to a single carriageway between the harbour and Tollbooth Street, the question remains – what should the additional space this frees up be used for? And how much of it, if any, should be given over to parking?

Have your say on reducing waste in Fife

Mon 22 Jan, 2018

Do you have any bright ideas for reducing waste in Fife?

Fife Council is currently preparing a new resources (waste) strategy, and is asking for your views on the best ways to reduce waste and repair, reuse and recycle items.

The strategy will look at waste as a resource rather than something to throw away. In addition to the environmental benefits that this could offer, the money saved on waste disposal could then be invested in local services.

Views sought on Burntisland’s proposed Post Office relocation

Fri 1 Sep, 2017

Residents are being asked for their views about a proposal to reopen Burntisland’s Post Office in a new location.

The Post Office in Burntisland closed in January following a robbery, with local residents and businesses having to travel to nearby towns to access the Post Office’s services ever since. Our conversations with local residents have revealed the inconvenience this has caused, particularly to the self-employed and those unable to drive.

Give Andy your first preference vote for St Andrews and Strathkinness on 4th May

Andy Collins Sun 30 Apr, 2017

I'm Andy Collins and I'm campaigning to be councillor for the St Andrews and Strathkinness ward.

I believe that I have the policies to tackle the lack of affordable housing in this ward whilst protecting green spaces. As St Andrews evolves, we need to ensure that it retains its unique charm.

Sustainable transport is key to addressing school’s safety concerns

Susan Jeynes Sat 29 Apr, 2017

Last week highlighted the latest in a raft of concerns caused by inconsiderate driving and parking in Kirkcaldy, this time at Torbain Primary School, where residents are so concerned about the safety of pupils that they are proposing closing the road to cars at drop-off and collection times. If elected, I would make addressing this issue a top priority. 

My pledge to carers and care workers in Fife

To all my former colleagues in the care sector and friends looking after loved ones, we value you!

A Green Kirkcaldy is within reach

Mon 24 Apr, 2017

For the first time, Fifers right across the Kingdom have the opportunity to vote Green in council elections. In Kirkcaldy, that means fielding four council candidates across the four Kirkcaldy council wards. 

Historically, Labour has dominated Fife politics, but over the last decade it has become more of a battleground between the SNP and Labour. 

Rather than the politics of opposition, the Scottish Greens seek to add a new voice to local politics and find consensus and compromise in the interests of a fairer, more equal society.
