Funding Secured For Glenrothes Town Centre Environmental Upgrades

Construction News Image
More than £500,000 has been secured for environmental improvements in Glenrothes town centre.

The project, which is jointly funded by SUSTRAN Community Links and Fife Council, will see new leisure and retail facilities developed on North Street, as well as a new CISWO club on South Street while the Kingdom Shopping Centre and Albany Gate will also be redeveloped.

The improvements will also include traffic calming methods such as entrance gateways, streetscape design and new surfacing. Other enhancements will see the creation of green space within the town centre, upgrading the public space outside Kingdom House and Fife House, creating a Piazza where events and activity can take place, and a new cycle path connecting to the existing cycle network.

Cllr Altany Craik said: "As Glenrothes celebrates its 70th birthday this year this is excellent news for local communities and businesses.

"The funding supports our vision to create a  town centre that can be enjoyed by local people and visitors alike. Our new and improved town centre will provide opportunities for socialising, space to hold events and be accessible for pedestrians and cyclists.

"The Council is committed to supporting the on-going regeneration of Glenrothes town centre and I'm looking forward to seeing the completion of this very exciting development."
