WORK on Kirkcaldy’s new state of the art swimming pool and leisure centre is set to start in just a few months time.

Important access rights surrounding the Tolbooth Street site have now been resolved and legal agreements have been reached.

This means exciting plans for the new multi-million pound facility for the town can take a step forward.

But campaigners opposed to the closure of the Tolbooth Street car park claim the news is “a very sad day for Kirkcaldy” and have vowed to continue fighting the plans.

Grant Ward, the Council’s head of leisure and cultural services, said now agreements are in place the tender process can begin. He said: “It’s been a lengthy and sometimes frustrating process, but I’m delighted that we’ve finally been able to reach agreement on what has been a complex array of access issues.

“We can now start the tender process which should take around six months to complete, so we would expect to see work beginning on site in the autumn.”
