Dunfermline City bid: Greens back Fife town's campaign for Queen's jubilee
Scottish Green Party members in West Fife have back a bid to name Dunfermline as a city, saying it could become Scotland’s first ‘green city’.
Previous jubilees have seen city status granted to Perth, Stirling, and Inverness.
West Fife Greens Co-Convenor Ryan Blackadder said: “We feel Dunfermline is the front runner for City status and that Fife Council have the opportunity to develop a future-proof city with people and nature at its heart.”
“The pandemic and years of car-centric policies have left us with a town centre full of exhaust fumes and empty units. Anyone who has visited a European City can rave about what we could have in Dunfermline: enjoyable walking and cycling, accessible public transport, and pedestrianised streets with outdoor areas for cafes, bars and tree-filled green spaces.”
