Developers submit proposal of application notice for £500m Rosyth waterfront plans
The Scarborough Muir Group (SMG) has submitted a proposal of application notice to Fife Council to unlock the delivery of its proposed £500 million regeneration of Rosyth waterfront.
First unveiled in November last year, the mixed-used development would cover 120 acres and include five zones in the shadow of the Forth bridges. These would incorporate: a business and employment park; the Rosyth Gateway commercial zone, including a supermarket, leisure centre, restaurants and large stores; shops, cafes, bars, galleries, housing and waterfront gardens.
it is hoped the development will result in the creation of 3,500 new jobs.
Developers said the submission was an important milestone towards delivering the waterfront project and one which will accelerate the regeneration scheme “significantly”.
SMG will now embark on a number of workshop events to consult with the local community to finalise its masterplan.
Following the public consultation, which will take place next month, SMG will then be able to submit a formal planning application before next spring.
SMG director William McAlister said: “We are looking forward to working with the council and the public over the next few months to deliver one of Scotland’s largest brownfield regeneration schemes.
“We are keen to hear the Rosyth and North Queensferry communities’ aspirations for the site as it will be of huge significance for the local and surrounding areas, creating some 3,500 jobs, and completely transforming the landscape around the waterfront.”
