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
- 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.
