As part of the wider regeneration of the town, the refurbishment of the Lochgelly Centre is seen as a significant first step to consolidate Fife Council services in an attractive modern environment, a catalyst for further redevelopment.
The existing entrance area, foyer, café, and meeting rooms have been radically altered and enlarged to accommodate the relocation of the local library. A new entrance foyer links the existing theatre, dance studio and classroom spaces with the new library and café. The exterior of the building has also been updated and extensive landscaping carried out.
As a result of collaboration between with Fife Council Arts & Theatre Trust, Fife Council and the project team, the community will benefit considerably from having a modern and sustainable multi-purpose community complex that will continue to be a focal point for the community.
