Meadowlands Dunfermline

Meadowlands - Aberdour Road - Dunfermline - Fife - KY11 8HW

We have submitted proposals for the provision of 208 new homes at Old Duloch House off Aberdour Road, Dunfermline in Fife.   The proposed development forms part of the wider Dunfermline Eastern Expansion.

  • Overview

    We have submitted proposals for the provision of 208 new homes at Old Duloch House, off Aberdour Road in Dunfermline.  The proposed development forms part of the wider Dunfermline Eastern Expansion and extends south from Aberdour Road and west towards our Fordell Lea development.

    The site which is proposed for our new development is outlined in red on the map pictured and currently neighbours existing residential developments north and east.

    Under our proposals, we would provide a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments with off-street parking and landscaped gardens, as well as a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes. A proportion of the new properties would be affordable homes for local people in housing need.

  • About the site

    The site is part of the wider Dunfermline Eastern Expansion area, and is located to the south-east of the town. The 28 acre site comprises two areas of land which are identified for residential development in the Local Development Plan (Meadowlands and R4).  It is located to the south of Aberdour Road and extends west towards our recently completed Fordell Lea development.

    The development will also provide a landscaped setting for Old Duloch House, which is a listed building that lies to the west of the proposed development site.

    The site is well-connected in the town of Dunfermline but also has easy access to the M90 for connection to Perth and Edinburgh. Dunfermline itself has a wealth of leisure, recreational and retail facilities. The site is close to everyday facilities with Tesco and Duloch Park Retail Area being only around one mile away.

  • What is proposed?

    Subject to planning permission, we propose to build around 208 new homes on this development, offering a wide range of styles from one and two bedroom apartments, as well as two, three, four and five bedroom homes.  The development will be accessed from Aberdour Road and is proposed to link through to our development at Fordell Lea.

    Affordable housing will be provided as part of our planning permission, and this is likely to be done through the provision of homes within the development.

    Key features of the proposed development are:

    • A diverse range of house types from apartments to detached homes
    • House sizes from one to five bedrooms
    • Located on the outskirts of Dunfermline with easy access to the countryside and the town's facilities
    • Good links to local services including the road and bus network
    • Areas of landscaping, structural planting and equipped play areas will be provided
    • Sustainable Urban Drainage principles will be followed for the site to control surface water run off
    • A setting for Old Duloch House, which is a listed building
  • Community Benefits

    When planning permission is granted for our development, it is likely that we will sign a legal agreement with Fife Council. This agreement will commit us to making financial and other contributions towards:

    • Increased education capacity
    • Affordable housing provision which we would intend to achieve by providing houses on the development

    The timing of these contributions will be agreed with Fife Council before planning permission is granted.
