  • The Leven Connectivity Project

    The Leven Connectivity Project aims to create a network of paths and cycle ways along a 5km stretch of the river, as well as creating around a further 20km stretch of paths which will weave through and between the local communities of Buckhaven, Methil, Methilhill, Leven and Windygates. Local people who have been involved have said that as well as creating many new paths we want to;

    • Deliver environmental improvements along the river

    • Bring some areas of vacant and derelict land in to productive use

    • Create spaces where people of all ages can visit and enjoy spending time

    • Create safe, affordable and accessible events for local people

    This project needs help to make it work so please get in touch if you can help us.

      • Find out more about The Leven Programme

        The Leven Programme is a regeneration initiative with the environment and people at its heart.

        It involves many key government agencies, non-government organisations, private sector and local communities working closely together to help deliver environmental improvements in and around the River Leven in Fife, while maximising the social and economic opportunities that these improvements can bring.

        Our 10 year vision is that by 2030, our partnership approach will have contributed to, and delivered a number of projects that will collectively have helped to breathe life back into the River Leven, improving the areas surrounding it and making them great places to live, work and visit.
