Views sought on two ‘major’ Levenmouth projects

LEVENMOUTH residents are being urged to have their say on two ‘major’ projects earmarked to get underway in the area over the coming months and years.

It comes as part of the investment being made to develop active travel routes and regenerate the River Leven, in a bid to reconnect the area’s communities.

The Levenmouth connectivity project aims to reconnect the area’s communities through the creation of a safe and attractive active travel network that will be accessible to all.

A series of improvements are planned that would make it easier and safer for people wishing to get around by walking, wheeling and cycling, and will also include links to and from new railway stations planned at Leven and Cameron Bridge as part of the Levenmouth Rail Link.

The restoring the River Leven project aims to improve a two-and-a-half-mile stretch of the river from Windygates to Leven. A range of proposals are being put forward, including making it easier for fish to move up and downstream of the Burn Mill and Kirkland Dams.

Councillor Altany Craik, Fife Council spokesperson for finance, economy, and strategic planning, said, “With so much going on and planned in Levenmouth, I’d urge everyone to have a look at these proposals and participate in these consultations. As a council, we understand the benefits of active and sustainable travel when it comes to establishing healthier and greener communities across the region, and we also want to make the most of the amazing natural assets we have on our doorstep.

“Safe and accessible infrastructure allows people to make sustainable travel choices, but these routes have to be practical for people to use in their everyday lives. That’s why it’s important for communities to help shape the designs, so please have your say.”
