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. 

Let’s get our rail services back on track

Susan Jeynes Fri 17 Mar, 2017

Green councillors and MSPs have a long history of fighting for decent public transport for all, from the Better Buses campaign in Glasgow, to campaigning against axing rural routes in Dumfries and Galloway.

Greens secure extra funding for communities across Fife

Susan Jeynes Fri 17 Mar, 2017

Green MSPs played a key role in the 2017 budget negotiations in Holyrood, securing an extra £160m for councils across Scotland. In Fife this meant an additional £10.78m to spend in 2017/18, which saw some of the most damaging cuts proposed  in the draft budget in November being scrapped.

These had included proposals to increase class sizes in Fife schools to the maximum legal limit, removing free bus passes from some pupils, and closing all remaining public toilets in Fife.
