About South West Fife
The South West Fife area covers 199km2 (14.5% of Fife). It has a population of 49,802 (13.6% of our total). The population in this area is predicted to decrease 6% by 2036 however, in the same period, the number of older people is set to increase by 50%.
There is a perceived divide between communities in coastal towns and the villages. There is concern about lack of facilities in villages, commercial land-use and derelict areas. Transportation and community links are perceived as poor, despite villages being close together.
People particularly want to see improvements in: work and local economy; public transport.
