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:

  • Changing the four-lane dual carriageway to a standard
    two-lane road
  • Improving pedestrian crossings
  • Adding more on-street parking nearer the leisure centre
  • Adding features to the spaces around the buildings and waterfront that encourage more use of the outdoor space and more social interaction (often referred to as 'public realm')

Do you agree that more parking is really necessary? Are the plan ambitious enough?

In an earlier news article - "Locals want leisure, not parking" - Fife Greens argued that Kirkcaldy already has an abundance of parking that is not fully utilised and that space in the town centre would be better put to pedestrian use and for leisure facilities.

Make your voice heard:

Let the council know what you think of their plans by taking part in their online consultation at before 8th October 2018.

A static display is also available in the Mercat Shopping Centre (outside the former Miss Maude’s Café) until the consultation closes on the 8th October

Levenmouth: A new start for Scotland's railway?

Mark Ruskell MSP Mon 12 Aug, 2019

Thursday’s announcement in Methil breathed a new air of optimism into the whole of Levenmouth and East Fife. In an area still impacted by post-industrial decline – and on the back of yet more disappointment for the BiFab yard recently – the news of a £70m investment into reopening a rail link to Edinburgh and the rest of Fife could not be more welcome.

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?
