Levenmouth Area Committee met this morning at Fife Renewables Innovation Centre, Methil. Here's a summary of the decisions and quotes.


Budget Requests


Happies Close Wall, West Wemyss – up to £15,000 (Ward 22 local community planning budget)

Funding has been agreed to renew the old sea wall, adjacent to Happies Close, West Wemyss. For safety reasons the old sea wall was demolished last year. Most residents would like to see the wall replaced.

Convener of Levenmouth Area Committee, Cllr Ken Caldwell said: “By re-instating this secondary sea defence wall the surrounding properties will be less exposed.”


Coaltown of Wemyss playpark development - £10,000 (Ward 22 local community planning budget)

Councillors have agreed a contribution towards improving the play space at Coaltown of Wemyss Primary School.

The parent and teacher group at the school has come up with a range of ideas that could improve the space for young children. Through discussions with the children the first phase of work will focus on creating a greenspace in the playground.

Cllr Caldwell said: “This is a strong local project which has been supported by local people and children. It’s part of the local improvements to play and amenity space which is a key priority for the area.”
