There has been a steady stream of folk to view the latest consultation on the future of Kirkcaldy’s town centre.

The event, staged by Kirkcaldy’s Ambitions group, aims to get feedback on its blueprint ‘Time For Action’ document - and find out what local residents want to see happen in the future.

Based in the Mercat Shopping centre, members of the group are on hand to do a quick survey and get feedback from passers-by.

There’s also a large map showing the proposed four sectors of the town centre and a chance to read more about the vision.

It runs today (Friday) and Saturday from 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.

The Ambitions Group includes the Fife Free Press, Fife Council, Fife College, Kirkcaldy4All, Fife Cultural Trust and Adam Smith Global Foundation.

Councillor Neil Crooks, who chairs the Ambitions group, said: “Since the summit held in 2012, the Ambitions Group has responded to local businesses’ views in producing the Time For Action plan.

“We’ve also delivered some improvements such installing wider bays, brighter lighting and interior painting at the Esplanade car park, and introducing improved, new visitor signage in the town.

“We’ve had major events such as Fife International Carnival and Kirkcaldy Film Festival, and supported the east end businesses in developing the Merchant’s Quarter.

“There is much more we want to do, but we need the public, businesses and residents in the area to tell us what they think of our plans and bring their own ideas as to how we can create a revitalised and vibrant town centre that we can be proud of.”
