The River Leven Park consultation
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency is looking to hear from local people, stakeholders and groups about the improvements they would like to see happen along the River Leven at Levenmouth, to enhance their enjoyment of the river and access to and along it.
In particular, it would like to hear views on the draft proposals for the River Leven Park - which is based on feedback acquired over several community engagement activities in 2020. The call for views encourages people to indicate what they like or what they don't like about the proposals.
The River Leven Park proposals aim to create an accessible, attractive and biodiverse public park for the local communities of Levenmouth and visitors alike. The aim is to have four gardens as areas of focus at various points along the river.
These will consist of:
Methil Garden, which will be a space for revealing the heritage of the river.
Burn Mill Garden, which will be a space for active exploration of the river.
Creosote Garden, which will be a space for communities to meet, grow and celebrate the river.
Iron Brig Garden, which will be a space for playfulness and discovery along the river.
This consultation closes on 23 October 2020. As part of the work done on this project, an informative animated video has recently been produced and can be viewed here.
