FIFE Council wants to find out what you think about the boundaries of your community council.

In the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area Crossgates, Hill of Beath, Kelty, Lumphinnans, Benarty, Cardenden, Kinglassie and the two big towns all have very active community councils made up of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live in.

The list of current community councils and boundaries are available at

As well as representing the community, community councils organise activities which promote their communities and bring local people together to help make things happen.

As part of this consultation, which runs until Friday February 28, Fife Council would like to know if you think your community council boundary should they be expanded to include other areas?

Or maybe you feel there are opportunities to merge, or even divide, existing community council areas to take account of demographic changes since the original boundaries were put in place? Whatever your thoughts, we want to hear them!

To have your say, you can: Visit email your comments to or you can write to Community Council Consultation, Legal and Democratic Services, Fife House, Glenrothes, KY7 5LT

Andrew Ferguson, Committee Services Manager, said: "We want to make sure that we have as many views as possible, from across Fife’s communities, including the areas that don’t currently have active community councils. "These views will help Councillors to come to their decisions when the review is completed.

"We’ll publish the outcome of the consultation in the spring. There will be more opportunities to have your say before the final amended boundaries are agreed and published in September".
