Fife Council kicked off a consultation exercise last night at Broad Street Community Centre aimed at involving local people and asking them to help shape and design the refurbishment of the former social work offices at Stenhouse Street into a new youth and community centre for Cowdenbeath.
Local MSP Alex Rowley attended the consultation meeting and said; “This new centre is to replace Broad Street Centre and will be much larger with many more facilities but the council made clear at the meeting they want to hear from local people about what they think needs to be in the new centre. There were representatives of many local groups at the meeting as well as young people putting forward a range of views and I hope more people will get involved and give the council their views.
“There is a range of good sport and leisure facilities within the town and this new facility will be able to enhance what is already there but can also be developed into the local community hub meeting local needs and local priorities and that is why local people should and will be able to have a major say in the development of the design of the new facilities”.
