Fife Council last week took forward the decision to use compulsory purchase to demolish the Glenwood shopping centre in Glenrothes. The demolition and redevelopment of the Glenwood Centre was one of a series of options that emerged from the Golden Glenrothes charrette project.

Golden Glenrothes was a series of community conversations in Glenrothes West, facilitated by PAS in partnership with Fife Council. We’re pleased to see action to take forward community aspirations for the Glenwood Centre.
Over the course of 2017-18, the Golden Glenrothes project – as named by the pupils of Glenwood High – engaged the Glenrothes West neighbourhoods of Macedonia, Tanshall, Caskieberran in the future of their place. Conversations focused on the regeneration of the Glenwood Centre, and addressed broad issues such as transport, access, and greenspace.It generated ideas from young people (local primary and high schools), businesses and the wider community in a series of workshops and walkabouts.
