Launcherhead Park has been earmarked for the potential development of a railway station.

The existing rail station has minimal facilities and does not have disabled access to the northern platform. The Lochgelly Charrette identified the opportunity to enhance the rail station facilities to more fully exploit this important asset for Lochgelly through relocating the station slightly to the west, providing full disabled access, additional parking and commercial facilities around the station. The relocation of the rail station is a long term project but land at Launcherhead Road must be safeguarded so that this important opportunity is not lost to Lochgelly.

    Whilst I appreciate there may be reasons to extend the railway station, to extend it into this location will remove a valuable green space which is actively and regularly used by residents. Is there not waste land to the east of the station which could be better utilised? The car park at the station is never full so I doubt that there is a need to extend parking.
