Fife Council received £26,500 to prepare the Leven Valley Green Network Masterplan as part of a broader regeneration proposal for the area being developed by the Council, major landowning interests, local colleges, businesses and trusts. Extensive consultation has been required and the Masterplan has been well-received. The Masterplan seeks to continue the Leven Valley parkland to the seafront developing new wetlands, woodlands and meadows and improving access. Former industrial areas will require to be cleared and there are plans to generate energy from the waste mine water and sewage for use in new enterprises on and around the park. The proposals are now being publicised locally to win support and plans are in progress to develop a phasing plan and a funding plan to support some early wins on the ground.
