Craig DempseyThere was further episodes of antisocial behaviour on Sat night...I was not in but my other half had bother with a group of youngish boys at the back of our house which backs on the public path up to the park from the new farm vale site. Throwing stones at our fence and into our garden at our dog.....catch 22, police on 101 are a waste of time as they will respond days later which just wastes everyone's time and dealing with it head on just makes you a target. The allotments are sitting ducks for these groups....I have a big greenhouse and it like most of the others is 'caged' to try and prevent glass breakages. I would welcome CCTV around the park area - the recent investment continues to make real improvements....I remain unconvinced that a skate park is the right thing for the area but too late...so we will see but I think it is worth a watch and if there is the possibility of CCTV coverage then we should push for it but this needs to be backed up by a quick police response.

Join us to beat anti-social behavior

Lochgelly Community Councillors are all volunteers who, like many community activists, want to see our town become a better place.

The work we are heavily involved with in the Public Park has transformed it into somewhere everyone can enjoy and more work is planned over the coming months. However, dog fouling continues to blight the area. Some reports of dog owners even using the MUGA.

Dog fouling, Irresponsible dumping and littering happens across the whole town.

We will continually raise problems associated anti-social behavior at our meetings with Councillors and Council Officers.

If you see these types of problems happening then you can call and ask for Community Wardens in the Safer Communities team on the number below.

Announced today by local Councillor Mark Hood. The Public Park Improvement group are proud to be part of another fantastic addition to our Park.

The possible addition of the Miners Heritage Cottage being planned by the Lochgelly Heritage Group will make the park a place we can all enjoy.

"UPDATE: Today the area committee approved £120k funding for the skate park. This along with the £20k funding from the park improve group means we have all the funding in place for the skate park. Planning is expected to be approved in the next couple of weeks and we hope to see construction starting in April."

The Cowdenbeath Area Committee have contacted us in relation to naming the new visitor centre at Lochore Meadows.

The Committee proposed that the facility be named after former Councillor Willie Clarke. It would be known as The Willie Clarke Visitor Centre.

If you have any views on this subject, please let us know before our next Community Council meeting on Wednesday 8th March.

Easter at Beath and Lochgelly High Community Use.

Campaign for decent Post Office services in Lochgelly.

We have continually, over the last 12 months, been approached with complaints about the post office service in the town. Now there appears to be uncertainty about the service being provided at all. We urge as many people to contact Post Office UK to voice their concerns. Below is suggested text that you can send

"The Post Office facility in Lochgelly has been a source of constant complaints. These have been from the lack of funds to make benefit payments, lack of stamps, intermittant opening and closing times and now it appears complete removal of the service. The latter being as a result of the counter being closed.

This has a significant impact onthe citizens of our town and is completely unacceptable. As well as the inconvience caused, it also results inadditional expenditure as people have to travelto other towns.

We request that an immediate review of the post office provision for our town is carried out. This is with a view to transferring the service into a facility that will provide the services we require continuously."

UPDATE: A new Lochgelly Health Centre I attended the latest workshop on a new Health Centre for Lochgelly. Today's' task was to explore potential sites and score them on suitability. A range of stakeholders were involved from the community, local doctors, health staff, NHS Fife and Fife Council. The site I preferred was the Francis Street site. The site plan shows a single story building approximately twice the size of the existing building. It's important that the council work with NHS Fife and ensure the additional parking needed for the town centre is included in the project. An update on the progress of the project is to be provided to the next meeting of the community council by one of the project team.

Lochgelly Community Council are a statutory body made up of volunteers from Lochgelly who give up their time to improve the town and ensure that we are properly engaged by Fife Council and the Scottish Government on matters which impact on the town.

We campaign on matters such as the need for a new Health centre, proper recreational facilities, Health and Social improvements across Lochgelly.

As a result of recent changes in the personal circumstances of Jon Magee, one of our longer serving Community Councillors who will be taking up a new post we have a vacancy to fill.

If you are interested in supporting the improvements made in Lochgelly? You feel that you could contribute to the development of the plans for the town? You think that you can offer a positive contribution to all aspects of the Lochgelly people’s lives? Even if you think Lochgelly Community Council needs a good shake up and you are the person to make a difference! Then put yourself forward as a Community Councillor by sending your details to

lochgellycommunitycouncil@yahoo.co.uk

The Community Council are non-political and open to residents of Lochgelly who are properly registered on the electoral register. Meetings are held once a month to discuss a wide range of topics effecting Lochgelly and the people of our town.

Scott CampbellNot in my opinion ! I think the red ash was a better facility and was well used with football training in the winter months,running,civic week,the shows and even the wee kids on their quads. I heard they were making it into a football pitch (right next to the existing pitch). And since we're at it,those flower beds they've scattered all over the park ! just an eyesore,would be a lot nicer if they put decent flowers in, not just weedy looking things that last a couple of weeks. I do think the community council are doing a fab job but just think these two things didn't need changed.

Work has commenced on transforming the red ash area of the Public Park. The area will be grassed over which will allow greater use for years to come.

The red ash has, with the exception of the annual gala celebrations, remained unused for many years.

By changing the surface to grass it wont simply change the visual effect, but allow increased options for people to use the surface.

Fife Council Officers have given as much assurances as they can that there will be no disruptions to next years gala event. The main caveat is the unpredictable weather.

As always, if you have any ideas which will help improve the park then let us know. Email lochgellycommunitycouncil@yahoo.co.uk

Are you affected by the dust, noise and lorries from the Jamphlars site?

The liaison group and Community Council have contacted the local press to highlight the problems.
A group photograph is being arranged for Sunday at 4.00pm outside the entrance to the Jamphlars site.
We need as many people as possible to come along and show their support.
We also need to show that it is the whole community that is being affected and not just the Jamphlars area.

RWE, the company who operate the wood chipping plant, want permission to work all day Saturday to cover possible 'emergencies'. The problem is 'emergencies' are occurring far too often and will continue for the next 25 years.
As far as Fife Council is concerned, we are just making a fuss.

Proposed Parking Restrictions in Main Street defeated!!

The Cowdenbeath Area Committee considered the proposed parking restrictions at the meeting earlier this month. You will recall that Lochgelly Community Council objected to the proposals and several hundred people from the town signed the petition. The following extract is from the minute of the Cowdenbeath Area Committee detailing the discussion which they had on this subject. The final decision was that our position was supported!!

“372. PROPOSED WAITING RESTRICTIONS – MAIN STREET, NORTH STREET,
MOFFAT CRESCENT AND CHISHOLM CRESCENT, LOCHGELLY
The Committee considered a report by the Head of Assets, Transportation & Environment, seeking the promotion of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) to introduce revised waiting restrictions on Main Street, Lochgelly, as well as on North Street, Moffat Crescent and Chisholm Street, Lochgelly.

Motion
Councillor Hood, seconded by Councillor Lockhart, moved that the promotion of a TRO be agreed for that part of the proposal relating to North Street, Moffat Crescent and Chisholm Street, Lochgelly, as detailed in drawing no. TRO/16/32a, with all ancillary procedures, and that officers be authorised to confirm the TRO within a reasonable period unless there were objections, but that no measures proceed at this stage for that part of the proposals relating to Main Street, Lochgelly, as detailed
in drawing no. TRO/16/32(‘After’), with a remit to appropriate officers to arrange the removal of current waiting restrictions, liaise further with local members on proposals to identify longer term off-street parking in the vicinity and report back in approximately 12 months.

Amendment
Councillor Ann Bain, seconded by Councillor Alistair Bain, moved that all parts of the proposals contained in the report be progressed by the promotion of a TRO as detailed in the relevant drawings, and that officers be authorised to confirm the TRO within a reasonable period unless there were objections.

Vote
Amendment: 2
Motion: 4

Decision
The Committee agreed: -
(1) (i) to the promotion of a TRO to introduce revised waiting restrictions on North Street, Moffat Crescent and Chisholm Crescent, Lochgelly, as detailed in the drawing no. TRO/16/32a, with all ancillary procedures; and
(ii) to authorise officers to confirm the TRO within a reasonable period unless there were objections; and
(2) (i) that no measures proceed at this stage for the promotion of a revised waiting restrictions on Main Street, Lochgelly, as detailed in drawing no. TRO/16/32(‘After’); and
(ii) it be remitted to appropriate officers to arrange the removal of current waiting restrictions, liaise further with local members on proposals to identify longer term off-street parking in the vicinity and report back in approximately 12 months”
