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.

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.

Masterplan for Inverkeithing
Click here for more information on #imagineInverkeithing and to view the Masterplan for Inverkeithing.
We asked the people of Inverkeithing to tell us how they would like to see the town develop.
This was an opportunity for residents and community groups to come forward with ideas on how to improve the area, create a place where people want to live, work and meet.
Peoples ideas where categorised into Short-term, Longer-term (2-5 years) and Bigger challenges (5-10 years). Of the Short-term ideas, the most popular were:
- A Place for teens to hangout
- High Street Markets
- More benches / Public Seating
- Practice Room for musicians
- An Outdoor Gym
A spatial masterplan for Inverkeithing was developed by AECOM, supported Fife Council and the local community. It establishes a shared vision to shape investment and community decision-making over the next 20 years.
This Masterplan is now available to view online or a hard copy can be viewed at Inverkeithing Civic Centre.
Fife Council’s South and West Fife Local Community Planning Team would like your views on what you think are priorities in your area. These views will help build a new plan for the area. Please click on the following link to get involved.

How could you spend £60,000 in your local community?
Do you live in Kincardine, Saline & Steelend, Culross, Low Valleyfield, High Valleyfield, Newmills or Torryburn?
Fife Council wants you to get involved in deciding how to spend £60,000 to improve your local area.
The council, in partnership with the Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Forward West Fife Steering Group is looking for people to come up with ideas for projects that could help regenerate the area following the closure of Longannet Power Station.
Funding for “Forward West Fife” has come from the council and Scottish Government.
Now you can get involved in deciding how public money is spent in your area by coming up with ideas and then deciding which projects should receive funding by taking part in a voting process.
This approach is known as ‘participatory budgeting’ and was a recommendation from the Fairer Fife Commission as a way of creating a Fairer Fife, getting people involved and giving them a direct say in where public money can make a difference to their communities.
A community seminar held by the Coalfields Regeneration Trust last summer encouraged local people to come up with visions and solutions they would like to see for their area. People who took part identified three priorities; heritage and tourism, access to services and local economy which will now be the focus of the fund.
Interested in applying for a share of this funding? Check out the guidance for applicants and application form
Applications must be returned by Friday 17th February 2017. A Steering Group of community representatives will then review applications and identify those which will go forward to a Decision Day event on Saturday, March 4 in Kincardine.
Successful applicants will then be invited to pitch their project and local people will vote on who should receive the funding.
