The land outlined for the proposed development is identified in FIFEplan as Halbeath (Dun 043) and the site lies in the North Dunfermline Strategic Development Area of the FIFEplan Proposed Plan.
The proposed development site can accommodate circa 1,400 homes of which 25% will be affordable. The proposed plans allow for the onward extension of the Northern Link Road; creation of an area for economic development; and make provision for a primary school, retail, and community facilities.
The development framework of the masterplan vision for land to the north of Halbeath.
We are proposing a wide range of detached, semi-detached, terraced homes and apartments to form part of a new master-planned development of around 1,400 new homes. Our masterplan vision includes provision for a new primary school, affordable housing, shops, community facilities and land for employment uses. The Northern Link Road, a new distributor road serving the north of Dunfermline, has been incorporated into our proposals.
Development will commence in the west of the site with an initial phase of around 340 new homes, of which 85 will be affordable homes. This phase of the development will also deliver part of the new Northern Link Road and the landscape framework associated with this area of the site.

Our programme of community engagement included working with a Community Liaison Forum, which was established to ensure there was regular communication about our proposed development with local community groups, elected members and other key stakeholders.
Now that our Resolution to Grant Planning Permission in Principle has been secured, we will continue to liaise with Fife Council and the wider community as we progress towards making a detailed planning application for the first phase of the development.
Pauline Mills, Land & Planning Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured a Resolution to Grant Planning Permission in Principle for our mixed-use development for the land to the north of Halbeath, which will consist of around 1,400 new homes with a Community Core, and forms part of the North Dunfermline Strategic Development Area (SDA).
“This decision is culmination of almost 20 months’ work, and represents a significant milestone in building this new community in west Fife. We will continue to work with Fife Council and the local community as we progress towards making a detailed application for the first phase of new homes later this year. It is our intention that this will be at the western edge of the site at Whitefield Road and will consist of around 340 new homes, including 25% affordable properties.
“With many months of work ahead to secure the detailed planning and technical consents that are needed for a development of this scale, we anticipate that it will be around another two years before the first new homes will be released for sale at this development.”
