AN AREA of Rosyth is set for a revamp after councillors agreed to allocate £100,000 for work to be carried out.

Improvement and development of the Goth area is due to take place as part of a regeneration plan for Rosyth Town Centre.

The plans were contained in a study undertaken in 2010 which looked into promoting and aiding urban regeneration and investment.

The first phase of the resultant project was completed in 2014 when improvement work – which included the addition of new coloured slabs and block – was carried out in Parkgate and the area of Queensferry Road to complement works that had taken place both within the Public Park and at the entrance to the park.

Phase two of the initiative will see similar regeneration of the Goth area of Rosyth and the junction around Queensferry Road and Park Road.

Applications for external funding are currently being made to secure cash which would fund 100 per cent of the consultation and design phase of this project. If approved, this would then lead to match-funding of between 50 per cent and 70 per cent of planned work.
