The Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration scheme is now underway and will run until 2024.
Fife Council are working with Fife Historic Buildings Trust and the local community to deliver the project. Funding will also come from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic Environment Scotland.
Here is an idea of the work happening over the next five years.
- Inverkeithing Town House will be restored to create a community hub that will be accessible to everyone.
- A grant scheme for buildings in the High Street area will help private owners to repair or improve their properties using traditional materials and skills.
- A major uplift to the High Street and the Market Square
- The Mercat Cross will be moved from its current location in Bank Street to the heart of the town.
- An exciting activity programme will raise awareness of Inverkeithing’s rich history and promote good practice in looking after traditional buildings.
To find out more about the project and to keep up to date visit the Fife Historic Buildings Trust site.

Dalgety Bay – revitalisation possibilities
Dalgety Community Trust hosted two events for the people of Dalgety Bay to have their say on the future revitalisation of their town centre.
The local design drop-in sessions gave people the chance to share ideas, big or small, see what other people were suggesting, and see the proposals of the Dalgety Community Trust.
The Dalgety Community Trust are exploring the possibility of developing a new civic square and community hub in Dalgety Bay. They wanted to get peoples views on what this might look like and what is important to the community.
The Dalgety Community Trust is a not for profit body set up by community volunteers to make positive changes for everyone in our community. Our aim is to undertake projects that have a positive impact on our town and reflect the aspirations of those who live in it. To do this we would love you to get involved! You can find out more about the Trust at www.dalgetycommunitytrust.co.uk or follow us on Facebook. If you like what you see, why not think about joining the Trust, it’s free to join and will connect you and keep you up to date with developments as well as the opportunity to get more involved.

It summarises the process and outcomes of discussions held with the community at a number of open consultations and discussions. The contents will be used as a tool to drive, discuss, coordinate and implement change.

Join the conversation. Get involved in the implement and delivery of the plan objectives. Why not keep up to date with meetings to develop the future plans and have you say on the future of your community.

Neighbourhood Plan for Inverkeithing
This Neighbourhood Plan is a flexible document which is likely to change. It is designed to be adaptable to meet different scenarios and needs.
We expect that over the 3 year life-cycle of the plan, conditions, opportunities, partners and funding options will undoubtedly change.
This Plan summarises the process and outcomes of the Imagine Inverkeithing Charrette Programme that took place in 2018. The contents will be used as a tool to drive, discuss, coordinate and implement change.
One of the key objectives of the Neighbourhood Plan is to empower a range of stakeholders within the local community to, not only contribute to the creative process of shaping the strategic future of the town, but to actually own, implement and deliver the Neighbourhood Plan objectives.
This is not a finished document. It is a draft which we ask you to read and comment on. All the comments received will be used to create an Action Plan which will then be developed to deliver the Neighbourhood Plan priorities.
