From 1st April we will have a limited number of previous committee meeting papers online.  We are currently transferring to our new system and will have more availability of historical papers shortly.  If you require papers that are not currently held on the website, please contact the Committee Administrator.

Our Committees and Panels meet regularly and make decisions by discussing and voting on a huge range of issues on behalf of the people of Fife.  You can view the agendas and minutes of these meetings, along with information on the remit and membership by clicking on the links below.

Area committees

Fife Council has established seven area committees based upon recognised groupings of the 22 wards. The committee structure reinforces the council’s commitment to localised decision making in addressing the differing needs of our communities.

You can access an overview map of the seven area committees at the bottom of this page.

The role of the area committees is to:

  • determine matters within their terms of reference which directly affect their area;
  • scrutinise service delivery and performance locally; and
  • monitor the impact of council and other public services on the community.

All local members sit on their area committee.

You can access information relating to the seven area committees here:
