Dunfermline City Chambers Reopens

Local MSP Bill Walker has welcomed confirmation that the Dunfermline City Chambers is set to reopen following a ten month, £1.2 million refurbishment.

Mr Walker said: “The City Chambers is one of Dunfermline’s most iconic historic buildings, so I welcome this restoration and refurbishment, which I understand is to all intents and purposes complete.

“As well as being available to service users, the City Chambers will now be open for visitors and tourists to look around its amazing interior, which is very good news indeed. People should have access to such a historically and architecturally important building. The City Chambers is part of Dunfermline’s heritage quarter and is readily accessible from other places of significance, such as the Palace, Abbey, Pittencrieff Park, Abbot House and the Carnegie Library.”

The City Chambers refurbishment is part of the previous Fife Council administration’s efficiency drive to reduce the number of council-occupied offices from 95 to 27. The refurbishment and restoration of the City Chambers has included the creation of a local office, meeting and interview rooms, and toilet and baby-changing facilities. Remaining external work should be completed by April.
