Covid-19 Coronavirus: Our Community Emergency Plan is now active. The newly formed Burntisland Emergency Action Team (BEAT) have developed a volunteer hub. Please see our Facebook page for the volunteer registration form. BEAT volunteers have delivered the above information on flyers to households across the town. Those self isolating because of the Covid-19 crisis, or housebound due to illness or disability, and in need of help, can use the information to access volunteer help for essential shopping, medication collection, dog walking, or to speak to someone.
The UK Government information is to STAY HOME except for essential reasons such as food shopping, collecting medication or accessing medical services, work for essential services such as NHS or Social Care, and for one exercise period per day.
Always keep a safe distance of at least 2m (7ft) from others on the pavement or in shops. Wash your hands well for at least 20 seconds after touching anything and before touching your face.
We confirm that our BCC meetings are cancelled meantime. If there are any issues you would like your CC to address, you can contact the acting BCC Secretary directly by using the ‘contact us’ email facility below.
The Fife Council website https://www.fife.gov.uk/ has a lot of information and easy to use features to report issues that don’t require the intervention of a Councillor or a BCC member. At this time of global crisis, please be patient.
Paths & Bins: Please be aware that Core Paths and Rights of Way may be temporarily closed at farms to allow farmers to self isolate while working during the Covid-19 crisis. As rubbish bins by the Fife Coastal Path and beach are out of action, and Fife Council struggles to empty others at this difficult time, please take all you litter home for proper disposal. This includes dog poo bags and cigarette butts!
Forth Ports proposed public access restrictions: Please see the Paths page for the plan.
Cot Burn in the Toll Park. Thank you for your positive feedback on the plans. (See the Cot Burn page on this website for details.) We have applied for grant funding and planning permission and will keep you informed of any developments.
We are still recruiting for new BCC members: Use the contact form below to email our secretary if you would like to join us. Members must be aged 16 or over and on the Electoral Register for Burntisland. Members are all unpaid volunteers who are interested in helping to improve their community. Please consider joining us!
