The Future of the Burgh Chambers

Burgh Chambers with Library to the right

Burntisland once had a Town Council, this magnificent building is where it met.

Now the Community Council meets once a month and the Heritage Centre is based in part of the ground floor (Entrance in Kirkgate).

Part of the building is unoccupied and the whole is generally underused.

The Community Community Council has been working hard for several years to make sure the Chambers survives for centuries to come and is also suitable for additional uses. One thing required is a lift to make the upper floor easily accessible.

The Burntisland Chambers Complex Feasibility Study (more documents) has recently been completed and plans will be available to see, and comment on, on Saturday in the Parish Church Hall – where the 1883 model is on display.

The future of the building behind the Chambers is uncertain. This may have been neglected for so long that the only ‘economic’ solution is demolition.
