Public Meetings: For the first time since the pandemic lockdown, our public meeting on Friday 13th May was held in person in the old Council Chamber at Burntisland Burgh Chambers, instead of by Zoom. There is no need to book a place to attend an in-person meeting. There is, unfortunately, no step free access to the Burgh Chambers. You should be aware that your CC has been meeting regularly throughout the pandemic but using Zoom to hold public meetings by webinar.

The meeting draft agendas are posted on this website during the week prior to the meeting. (See tab on the right of this page to download an agenda.) 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 draft Minutes are posted on this website usually by the Friday following the meeting (see Minutes page on this website to access all recent minutes.)

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 Councillor or a BCC member.

Active travel news:  Fife Council have almost completed work on widening the existing Core Path across the Links for a shared use Path (pedestrians, cyclists & wheelers). It is hoped this will take cyclists away from using our prom on the Fife Coastal Path route. It will also help improve disabled access. To meet standards for shared use paths, the path is now 4m wide. This is not a road and motor vehicles should not be permitted. We hope it may be possible in the future to link this path to the east harbour route to produce a level active travel route to/from the rail station.


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.

Community Police: The most recent report can be found under the most recent set of the BCC Minutes on the Minutes Page. Our Community Police are holding monthly public meetings at the Toll Community Centre Hub in the High St. See The Hub for details of times etc.

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