CLEAR Buckhaven ~ CLEAR Fife

Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration

August 17 Update: We had a lovely Open Day at the Growing Space to wave goodbye to July, which was a challenging month in terms of weather.  With most CLEAR activities outdoors, we have to be creative in finding productive tasks for volunteers on rainy days and there's only so much potting-up required.  At least our various sheds and workshops are neat and tidy.  And it only slightly reduced the wok of our heroic volunteers who water the floral displays  Outdoors, harvesting the summer crop of veg and soft fruit goes on and we await the fruit harvest.  The Street Champions are as busy as ever trying to keep litter under control across the town.

The Heritage Project held some sessions at Braehead Gardens to gather memories of Buckhaven in better days.  Biking Buckhaven has been active with at least 50 bikes repaired including redistributing donated bikes, plus a couple of outings researching our planned Cycle Routes leaflet.  Planning ahead, site visit and discussions with Duncan from Levenmouth Academy on plans for joint work once the school reopens - he also produced a fabulous slideshow on a range CLEAR community place-making

The final versions of the Buckhaven Links! Community Action Plan 2018-23 and a Spatial Master Plan are out now.  The challenge is now to identify and progress some of the recommendations and ideas, if resources can be mobilised.  A working group mechanism or similar to co-ordinate efforts of the different actors on an ongoing basis will be necessary.
