Plans submitted for 140 new homes in Kinghorn
Fife Council has received plans for a major development in Kinghorn comprising of 140 new homes.
Gladman Developments is seeking permission to build the homes at Mid Mire in Kinghorn, which it said could bring 294 new residents to the town.
At least 15% of the new homes would be affordable, according to the in-principle planning application.
The planning application says it hopes to show how a high-quality residential development could be delivered in the short term, The Courier reports.
The development would be located to the east of Red Path Brae on greenfield land in a rectangular shape to the north of Kinghorn.
Of the 140 homes, Gladman Developments said 21 units would be affordable, and it estimates new residents could generate £3.9 million annually to the local economy.
It also contains proposals for tree planting, open space and wildflower meadows to contribute to green strategies.
The planning application reads: “This submission demonstrates how a high-quality residential development, of a nature compatible with the immediate and wider surroundings, is capable of being delivered in the short-term, bringing a range of positive benefits to Kinghorn and the wider mid-Fife area.
“The proposal is informed by detailed site analysis, landscape led approach and technical studies to determine an appropriate development footprint, a layout that incorporates the design objectives/aspirations and sustainability principles.”
Access to the development would be from three points – two along the B923 and one from Redpath Brae.
