Proposed boundary changes

Public consultation on change between Fife and Perth & Kinross council area at Keltybridge

Issued on behalf of The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland


The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland is seeking the public’s views on proposed changes to the local government area boundary between Fife council area and Perth & Kinross council area at Keltybridge and at Fife Environmental Energy Park, Westfield.

The existing boundary follows the old watercourse of the Kelty Burn by Keltybridge as well as crossing through a domestic property in Keltybridge and the site of the Environmental Energy Park at Westfield.

The Commission is proposing that the boundary at Keltybridge is realigned with the existing watercourse of the Kelty Burn and that the misalignment at Westfield is corrected to follow the current boundary fencing.

Details of the proposals can be found on the Commission’s website www.lgbc-scotland.gov.uk and can be viewed at the following sites:

  • Cowdenbeath Library, 41 High Street, Cowdenbeath, KY4 9QA
  • Benarty Community Centre, Flockhouse Avenue, Ballingry, Lochgelly, KY5 8JH
  • Kelty Local Office, Fife Council, 51-53 Main Street, Kelty, KY4 0AA
  • Glenrothes Local Office, Fife Council, Fife House, North Street, Glenrothes, KY7 5LT

  • Loch Leven Community Library, Loch Leven Community Campus, The Muirs, Kinross, KY13 8FQ

The Commission consulted Fife Council and Perth and Kinross Council on its proposals between 16 October and 16 December 2014. The public consultation ends on 9 April 2015 and the Commission expects to submit its final recommendations and Report to Scottish Ministers in late 2015.

Comments on these proposed changes can be submitted by e-mail to comments@scottishboundaries.gov.uk or in writing to: Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland, Keltybridge Review, Thistle House, 91 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5HD.
