Fife Council’s central area planning committee agreed in principle three years ago to allow construction of 420 homes and several industrial units at Westwood Park, on the town’s south side.
However, progress was hindered by logistical issues regarding the timing of construction work, which now appear to have been resolved following the conclusion of a legal agreement between the council and developer Landteam Scotland.
Construction of the Westwood Park project, between Stenton and Thornton, is likely to take about a decade.
The first phase of housebuilding would take place in the south-east corner of the application site, next to Blackwood Road. There would be further housebuilding on the western side of the land, next to Stenton.
