The Power Sharing Agreement between Fife SNP and Fife Labour includes a Programme for Administration which sets out a series of objectives to be carried forward under the theme heading: Culture Sport and Physical Activity.

Culture Sport and Physical Activity

1. Invest £10m in local sports/play and active leisure facilities to be decided on by Area committees in partnership with local communities and ensure that Fife makes early bids to secure funds from the Scottish Government’s sporting equality fund

2. Ensure that every child in Fife should be able to swim and ride a bike safely by the time they leave primary school

3. Retain and expand the Quid-a-Kid and free summer swim schemes

4. Work with Sports Scotland and other agencies to develop top class sports facilities in Fife. Increase the number of sports hubs and use of state-of-the-art sports surfaces across Fife

5. Explore further Council’s school estate for community use and complete pilots within first 6 months of Administration on schools raising and retaining funds raised through lets and controlling prices to suit local demand with a view to removing current school letting policy. (Current pilots at Windmill and Burntisland PS)

6. Work with Fife’s sports clubs, further develop local football academy facilities and improve facilities for grass roots participation in sport

7. Develop specific sporting programmes to facilitate access and opportunities which increases participation of women and girls in sport and physical activity and support bids to the Sporting Equality Fund

8. Improve access to green recreation and play space, especially in our vulnerable communities, to maximise health, education and biodiversity benefits

9. Ensure future library provision in Abbeyview and Glenwood are secured through budgeted neighbourhood investment and engagement plans

10. Address the inequality of access to sporting facilities experienced by children and families located in rural Fife
