What Does Your community Council Do?

Community Councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent.

The primary purpose of Kelty Community Council is to ascertain and express the views of the community to the local authority and other public bodies.

The Community Council may also get involved in a wide range of other activities including fundraising, organising community events, undertaking environmental and educational projects and much more.

There are currently around 1200 Community Councils in Scotland, all of which are composed of elected volunteers from the community.

Subject : Lochore Meadows Country Park Development Board


Please see attached draft Terms of Reference for the above which will replace the predecessor LMCP Advisory Board which ran under the auspices of Fife Coast and Countryside Trust.  I am seeking comments and views on the draft and welcome suggested amendments and additions.  The draft has been seen and agreed by the Area Councillors and they will sign off the final version.

Please publicise this widely – including and especially on social media pages.  I would be pleased if you could also circulate it to any other local groups and contacts you may have.  To give Community Councils and others time to consider and respond I am proposing a consultation period of just over six weeks.  That will start tomorrow (20th September) and run until Monday 30th October.

Thank you for assisting with this and please encourage feedback.

Good Morning All

Please see below and attached from David Henderson, Team Manager/Advisor ( Committee Services), Democratic Services. Any queries should be directed to him at david.henderson@fife.gov.uk :

I’m attaching for your attention details concerning the start of the public consultation stage of a statutory review of polling districts and places in Fife being carried out over the next few weeks. 

You'll see that Linda Bissett's explanatory letter also is being sent to other elected representatives for Fife, as well as Community Council Secretaries, disabled access interest groups and members of the public (via notice on FifeDirect, etc.).  I'm also attaching for your information an advance copy of a news release on the matter which will be issued on Monday next week, 18th September (when the consultation period starts).

I'm repeating below for ease of reference the first of two electronic links contained in Linda's letter:-


From that home page (as Linda has indicated), further links can be followed which will provide (from Monday) more detailed information about the consultation process, as well as more specific polling details.

A second link towards the end of Linda's letter confirms an email address to be used for any comments you have as part of the consultation:-


You'll note that the period of consultation ends on Friday, 27th October.

I hope this notification is helpful."

News item for Fife Direct





The Lindsay Colliery Memorial Service.

Kelty Community Council will be holding a memorial service for the 60th anniversary of the Lindsay Colliery Disaster. On the 14th of December 1957 nine men lost their lives and thirty were injured in an underground explosion. The organisers of the event would like to invite ex-miners, who worked in the Lindsay Pit and have moved away or did not live in Kelty, to join with the local community in this service of remembrance. 
The service will be held at 7pm on 15th December 2017 at Kelty Community Centre. It would help the organisers in planning the service, if you could let us know if you will be attending, however, this is not essential. The Community Council can be contacted at keltycommunitycouncil@gmail.com or 01383 831411
Further information about the Lindsay Colliery Disaster can be found at:
