Last year the Lochgelly Charrette devised a master plan to guide the future development of Lochgelly. One of the key short term projects is to investigate new uses for the disused but historic and highly visible St Andrews Church on Bank Street as it was felt that this building could make a positive contribution to the revitalisation of Lochgelly.
Several uses have already been suggested including an indoor market, recording studio, artist’s workshops, children’s play centre and youth club/centre. Sandra Macrae of Campbell Macrae Associates has been appointed by Fife Council to explore potential new uses for St Andrews Church. Sandra says “new uses of St Andrews Church must be sustainable in the longer term and ideally should appeal to a wide cross section of the local community. They should also complement rather than compete with other local facilities”.
Sandra is keen to hear from anyone with a view on how St Andrews Church could be developed in the future and also to identify potential users including new or existing groups, individuals or businesses. Sandra’s e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
