Welcome To The Kingseat Community Information Site
The village of Kingseat is in the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland and is situated on the B912 road being 1.5 miles north east of Dunfermline and lying between Dunfermline and Kelty. It owes it's origin to coal mining in the mid 1800's when a total of 4 pits were worked. Mining ceased in 1945 although Scottish Coal has again been working an Opencast site on the outskirts of the village.
The village consists of approximately 370 houses. It has a Post Office/store, a Community Centre and a Church of Scotland.
On the outskirts of the village is Loch Fitty which used to be run as a trout fishery, although now closed down, it is still a popular place for anglers and dog walkers.
The village has an active Community Council and Bloom in Kingseat group - further information about these groups and others is to found on this website.

From Mossmorran: Planned Flaring at the site from 10th Aug for 3 days
“This weekend we will start our annual ‘Turnaround’ at the Shell Fife NGL plant, when we will reduce production over a 15-day period in order to carry out planned investment and maintenance on the plant.
“As part of this Turnaround, I would like to notify the local community of planned, intermittent use of the Fife NGL elevated flare during a period of 72 hours, beginning 10am on Saturday, 10 th of August.
“We must use the flare to empty the pipes and vessels on Module 3, which then enables us to complete testing on our safety systems and maintenance on the Module’s safety-critical valves. The plant preparation will be phased in order to minimise the flaring rates as far as possible, including by use of our ground flares.”

Taylor Wimpey Whitefield Road Developement - Dun 043 - 1400 houses.
Fife Council (west) today, (16th Jan) gave approval to the planning in principal application for the above developement. This is in spite all the objections put forward by some councillors and the general public. In general all the questions raised about local infrastructure,ie Education, Healthcare, Transportation (roads etc) were give the answer that 'Mitigations' will be put in place to alleviate the foreseen problems. It will mean though TW will have too meet lots of conditions before full approval is granted. What it does mean also is that the full application already submitted for the first phase (340 houses) can now be considered/decided by Fife Council.

Application to open a Pharmacy in Kingseat.
The consutation period has now closed and there were approx 150 forms of support from the village. Whether this is enough to persuade NHS Fife to grant the application we will have to wait and see. But it does fall short of the expected/required support.
To all Dog Owners
There are still instances of dog fouling around the village, particularly around the children's play areas. Please bag and remove dog waste, you know who you are. If there isn't a bin to hand, take it home and bin it. Don't leave little parcels of dog poo in public areas, they won't magically disappear.
Dog fouling is a health hazard to our/your children
