  DONIBRISTLE CHAPEL UPDATE JUNE 2015 

from the minutes of the Community Council meeting 8 June 2015

Donibristle Chapel
Another suggestion for future use was received from the Guides.  Unfortunately the funding will only make the building safe but not watertight with no roof so would not be suitable for the suggestions received.  The Community Council will contact Fife Council suggesting that the building should be maintained as part of the historical history of Dalgety Bay with noticeboards erected showing this.

 

  BEACH RADIATION UPDATE JUNE 2015 

from the minutes of the Community Council meeting 8 June 2015

REPORT ON FORESHORE RADIATION
Dr Paul Dale, SEPA submitted the following written report.
The DIO contractor continues to monitor for and remove radioactive sources from the intertidal area.  This work together with the signage and demarcation results in an appropriate level of protection for members of the public while remediation plans are being developed.  In order to develop detailed plans for remediation, permissions from local landowners are required and discussions to achieve these are ongoing.
In April SEPA staff assisted the Sailing Club by monitoring a trench being dug adjacent to the Clubhouse for a new drain.  SEPA recovered a radioactive source during this work.
In May SEPA staff provided radiological support to a programme of removal of sewage debris in the Bay.  Monitoring was also carried out on beaches to East and West of the contaminated area.  The monitoring indicated that the contamination remains contained within the areas identified.  SEPA also ensured fencing, signage, etc. remained in good condition.

Iain Robertson, MOD / DIO reported monitoring and recovery continues in line with SEPA’s requirement.  Monthly monitoring and recovery revealing a general downward trend in particles collected with those falling within the agreed criteria remaining at the low end of single figures
Memorandum of Agreement between the Public Bodies has been signed.
Design phase progresses with intrusive design elements programmed to further inform the design progress.  Stakeholders engagement continues.  Project remains within the time parameters.
Fife Council South West Area Committee will be updated on 19th August and the Community Council on 10th August.

 

  BARNS FARM DEVELOPMENT UPDATE JUNE 2015  

from the minutes of the Community Council meeting 8 June 2015

Barns Farm

The Chair reported on his conversation with John Raine from Shell UK
No information was forthcoming on their decision about the sale of the fields for housing. It still remains on hold. As the Chair will be holding a Jubilee Committee meeting on the evening of Thursday 11 June, John McCall agreed to attend the Mossmorran and Braefoot Bay Safety and Liaison Committee Meeting that same evening. It was agreed that Persimmon Homes be contacted to ascertain the position on their option to buy the land from Shell UK and planning position following their PAN and public consultation earlier this year.
Support was given to Roy Green on producing a private website petition to the Scottish Government objecting to proposed housing developments at Main Street, Aberdour, Barns Farm, Dalgety Bay and Spencerfield, Inverkeithing.
Cllr Dempsey reported that the West Area Committee at their meeting on 20 May recommended the removal in a report by Planning Officers that these sites are  supported and contribute to the SESplan.

 NEW USE FOR DONIBRISTLE CHAPEL 
The Community Council wish to carry out a consultation on the future use of Donibristle Chapel. Fife Council has contracted Impressions in Stone Ltd to carry out conservation repairs on the Chapel which will begin on 27th April lasting for 2 to 3 weeks. This will make the building safe but it is thought that the best long–term management solution would be to find a new use for the Chapel. If a viable re–use of the Chapel could be identified then Fife Council would be pleased to lead on a project to find funding. The Community Council would like to know of any interest or suggestions from residents. Please contact the Community Council Secretary Jeanette Gray by email to jeanette.gray1@btopenworld.com,  by letter to Jeanette Gray, 46 Lade Braes, Dalgety Bay, KY11 9SS, or through the CONTACT US page on this site.

Lost balls and toys have been found inside the Chapel.   Fife Council will ask the contractor to put them aside for collection if you let us know.
