Levenmouth’s people and businesses are being urged to have their say on two major projects happening in the area over the coming months and years.

Substantial investment is being made in the area to develop active travel routes and regenerate the River Leven.

With that in mind, we’re seeking the public’s views on those ambitious proposals, to not only help shape them moving forward but also ensure they best reflect the needs and wishes of local 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 key improvements are planned that will 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 that are designed to help restore the river for the benefit of local people and wildlife. These include making it easier for fish to move up and downstream of the Burn Mill and Kirkland Dams to breed and thrive.

As both projects are closely linked, two public consultations have now opened and will run parallel with one another – with people able to give feedback in a range of ways.

We are hosting two drop-in community information events, where people can come along in person and find out more about what’s proposed. There will also be members of the respective project teams on hand to answer questions and take views on board.

Those public consultation events have been arranged as follows:

  • Thursday 1 December 2022 – Bayview Stadium, 3pm to 8pm

(Jeek Fleming Suite, Bayview Stadium, Harbour View, Methil, KY8 3RW)

  • Thursday 8 December 2022 – Methilhill Bowling Club, 11am to 4pm

(Methilhill Bowling Club, Main St, Leven, KY8 2DP)

The Restoring the River Leven Project consultation closes on December 11, while the Levenmouth Connectivity Project consultation closes on December 16.
