TIME is ticking if you want to have your say on the future of Cowdenbeath Town House.

The building has been closed since 2016, but there is now an "exciting opportunity" to see it transformed and brought back into life.

The Times previously told you that it could soon become an award-winning social enterprise providing cut-price food as well as life-changing learning and development programmes.

The High Street site is expected to be turned into a Community Shop following an approach by the Coalfields Regeneration Trust.

Supplied with surplus and donated food, the Community Shop organisation works to offer discounted food and household products to those who need it while making sure perfectly good items do not go to waste.

However, it also provides training opportunities to help people increase their confidence and overcome barriers in their lives, and offers a community kitchen where people can not only enjoy quality meals at low prices but can also get together to take part in activities and family-orientated events.   

After positive feedback from a community drop-in event held in May, which allowed members of the public to view proposals of a Community Shop being established, CRT are now seeking to purchase the building and progress this project.

Fife Council is looking for locals to share their views on the sale and future use of the building by taking part in an online consultation which will run until this Sunday, August 7.

Cllr Alex Campbell, Cowdenbeath area committee convener, said: "These proposals could be a great opportunity to bring this historic building back into public use.

"Not only will it be a benefit to many people in the community but could also attract people back to the High Street.

"We want to hear what locals think and give them the chance to get involved and have their say on the future of the Town House."
