Public access to Burntisland Docks

I speak a lot about the spirit of community that exists across the Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath Constituency. In these challenging times, one silver lining has been the renewed appreciation folk have for our surroundings. That’s why it’s really concerning to hear about Forth Port's plans to restrict public access to Burntisland Docks. Many people use the docks daily to go for walks, cycling, and to appreciate the marine life in the area. I get it. This is a community resource. So, it’s encouraging to see people in Burntisland come together and campaign against these proposals. This is a real community effort. At the time of writing, the petition has 2,309 signatories. I first heard about Forth Port’s plans in late January and I immediately wrote to the port manager to get more information for the community. That’s the least I can do as the local MP. I’ve also got a meeting scheduled in with Forth Ports and I’ll attend the next Burntisland Community Council meeting to keep the community updated. If you’d like to lend your support to the campaign, you can sign the petition by clicking here.
