KIRKCALDY’S AMBITION IDEAS for DEVELOPMENT

 

SMALLKIRKCALDY AMBITIONS LOGO SKYLINE

Today, Tuesday 8 July, I am working on considerations for a proposal to submit to Kirkcaldy’s Ambition about how to develop the methods for public consultation on the new look for Kirkcaldy. There is a need to visualise the wide range of ideas from stakeholder groups to develop the consultation output methods to inform all.  Visual images of how the proposed new spaces and developments will look within the town centre are vital to show everyone how future spaces will look.  Kirkcaldy Ambitions is the umbrella group  that aim to bring the ideas to fruition.

Fife Council   Kirkcaldy4All    Adam Smith Global Foundation   Fife College    Fife Cultural Trust

There are now 4 key areas that are to be developed within the town that will need to be linked and connected by some methods of access routes through design development :
