TESCO car park in Dalgety Bay is to be resurfaced thanks to pressure from the community council.

It’s not known when the work will be completed but it has been agreed by Fife Council, who have taken over the car park at the Regent Way shopping centre.

John Wootton, chairman of Dalgety Bay Community Council, said: “It’s great news.

“It’s been something that we have been working on for a while. We don’t have a timeline at this point but they will do it.

“It seems a bit of a strange one but Fife Council took responsibility for the car park a few years ago.

“It’s in a bit of a state and there’s quite a lot of potholes so we started putting pressure on.

“The councillors have been very supportive and have been liaising with officers on the issue.”

The community council wants to improve the area with several units empty at the shopping centre.

Part of their plans is to see a new community hub in the centre of the town.

John added: “We’re looking at a hub as the community centre has not been updated since the town was built.

“We seem to have a lack of meeting rooms. In 2011, there was a report into improving the facility but that did not progress so we picked it up again.

“We’re currently consulting with the community. “It will enhance that area and hopefully will bring people to that part of town.

“Tesco is also looking to improve the area as it needs tidying up. They do recognise they have competition further up the road now.”

Councillor David Barratt said: “It’s not great for Tesco with the new Aldi opening and the upcoming petrol station at Asda.

“I think there needs to be something to keep the town centre going and the community has been very involved with ideas.”
