Fife Council is holding a drop-in event to discuss the latest proposals for the Rockgelly project at St Andrews Church and the proposals for a new town square.

Residents are being urged to attend a drop-in event being held in the foyer of Lochgelly Centre on the 4th July from 10:30am until 7:30pm to view the plans for the Rockgelly facilities and discuss options for the development of a town square behind the church premises.

The Rockgelly project has been under long-term development at the St Andrews Church with the aim to deliver a Fife-wide Regional Indoor Climbing and Bouldering Centre. As part of the phase one development the organisers are keen to develop an extension to the church so the building meets Mountaineering Scotland standards.

Designs for the extensions are now available and Fife Council are seeking local views. A spokesperson for Fife Council says;

“Lochgelly has changed a lot over the last few years and these changes have been celebrated locally and nationally, with the town being the current holder of the prestigious Scotland’s Most Improved Town title. Proposed designs for the extension are now ready and Fife Council would like to invite the community to come and chat to us about them. We want your feedback so that we can create a fantastic facility for residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Residents will also be able to view early plans for the new Town Square to be developed behind the St Andrews Church after the Rockgelly project has been completed. The spokesperson added;

“Again we want your ideas for the new square – what it could be used for and how should it look and feel. Please join us at our drop in event on Tuesday in the foyer of Lochgelly Centre to celebrate what has been achieved so far and to find out more about the next steps, giving us your valuable feedback, ideas and opinions.”

The drop-in event is being held on the 4th July 2017 starting at 10:30am until 7:30pm at the foyer in Lochgelly Centre.

    Unsure why there is plans for a new town centre. There is already a town centre the cross next to all the shops and facilitys. It has seats and a statue and is not used by any people of the town. The new town centre will be surrounded by house and why do you think it would be any more popular. Like anything else proposed for lochgelly ie bike track rock climbing it takes years and costs double or there is no consultation or proper planning. Also you are speaking of an extension for the rock climbing and hadn’t even opened yet so dont know how popular it will be or viable..
