A new group set up to help decide how £10 million is spent to improve Levenmouth has met for the first time.
The Levenmouth Reconnected Task Group, chaired by SNP councillor Ken Caldwell, will play a key role in how the funding is distributed across the area.
The £10m was announced by Transport Minister Michael Matheson last year when he confirmed the go-ahead for the Levenmouth rail link.
The Scottish Government will provide £5m, with the remainder coming from Fife Council.
Mr Caldwell said the aim was to maximise the benefits of the rail link.
“The first meeting of the task group was positive,” he said.
“We agreed the work of the group and the way ahead.
“There’s no denying the amount of working needing achieved but the group has a strong can do attitude that will help us reach our goal.
“It’s an exciting time for Levenmouth and we want to make sure we maximise the benefits and get things right for everyone.”
Members of Levenmouth Rail Campaign, local councillors and community councillors are also on the group, along with officers from Network Rail, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Fife Council.
They will meet every eight weeks and provide regular updates to the community.
