Locals were invited down to ‘Imagine Kincardine’ open day to learn more about improvements taking place in the town
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust (CRT) experienced a high turn out at the ‘Imagine Kincardine’ open day which saw members of the Kincardine community, local businesses and others attend to learn about the proposed infrastructure improvements to the town.
In attendance were Edinburgh-based landscape architects and urban designers, HarrisonStevens and Sustrans, who have been commissioned for the ‘Kincardine, Places for Everyone’ project to improve the village’s connectivity, traffic circulation for both vehicles and pedestrians and people’s overall experience. Looking for more active travel alternatives, Places for Everyone aims to create a safe, attractive and healthier community for residents to meet their day-to day needs by walking, cycling and wheeling for everyday journeys.
Guests who attended the open day were invited to join the architects on a walking tour of the town centre to get a better understanding of the design proposed and ask pressing questions. Also, on display were proposed plans for the new Health and Wellbeing centre along with other pipeline projects planned for the village.
As well as promoting new plans for Kincardine town centre improvements, Fife Council and the local housing association were on hand to discuss its plan for external improvements to existing properties in the community in addition to other services being available in the town such as the employment trust programme Coalfields Worx.
Stuart Douglas, Head of Operations (Scotland) said: “We were delighted with the turnout to last week’s ‘Imagine Kincardine’ Open Day. Not only did it give the community the chance to see the latest developments in the Kincardine regeneration project, but it also allowed us to hear all meaningful feedback.
“It’s been great to get physical events back and interacting with the local community. We’re hoping this will be one of many Coalfield Regeneration Trust community events to take place over the coming year.”
