Fife Council website: The Fife Council website https://www.fife.gov.uk/ has a lot of information and easy to use features for members of the public to report issues that don’t require the intervention of a Councilor or a BCC member.

You can contact one of our local elected Fife Councilors for our community. Our three local Fife Councilors for Ward 9 are: Cllr Backhouse, Cllr Langlands, and Cllr Leslie. Their contact details are at: https://www.fife.gov.uk/kb/docs/articles/about-your-council2/politicians-and-committees/your-local-councillors

Queens Green Canopy: Our application for over 400 free small tree saplings from the Woodland Trust for community planting around our town, has been successful! We also now have the Fife Council Permission for all the suggested sites around town! Fife Council have also offered their assistance. Further information will be available early next year with community planting proposed for late March. Separately, we are also proposing to plant replacement trees in the gaps along the north edge of the Links.

For details please see: https://queensgreencanopy.org

Christmas Lights: We are looking for volunteers for our Festive Lights Group. If you'd like to help Burntisland 'sparkle', either by fundraising, organising, or practically, please contact us. No electrical skills are required and guidance is available. Meantime, our Christmas Lights are up as last year and looking festive!

Public Meetings: These are still being held by Zoom webinar until the pandemic eases enough to resume in-person meetings. If you would like to join any of our BCC public Zoom meetings, please contact the Chairman or Secretary for an electronic invitation. You can do so by emailing the 'contact us' box on this page before noon on the day of the meeting. Meetings can last up to two hours. The meeting Agenda will be posted on this website during the week prior to the meeting. (See tab on the right of this page.) If you would like a topic added to the agenda please use the 'contact us' box. You can also raise a topic at the start of the meeting but it will depend on time constraints if it can be included at that meeting. The meeting Minutes are posted on this website usually the Friday following the meeting (see minutes page.)

Community Police: The most recent report can be found under the most recent set of the BCC Minutes on the Minutes Page.

To report antisocial behaviour, vandalism and graffiti to Fife Council there is a reporting form on the Fife Council website:
