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.
Proposed development framework of the masterplan vision for land to the north of Halbeath.
We have submitted two applications for Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) together with the necessary technical assessments for each application for the site forming part of the North Dunfermline Strategic Development Area (SDA), allocated in FIFEplan as proposal DUN 043. One application is for the entire site and the other is for the initial phase one of the development.
We are proposing a wide range of detached, semi-detached, terraced homes and apartments to form part of a new master-planned development. 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.
The Phase 1 application area (shown below) extends to just over 17ha and is located on the west side of the site. The proposal is for a residential development of around 340 new homes including around 85 affordable homes and will deliver the initial phase of Fife Council’s NLR and the landscape framework associated with this area of the site.

Our programme of community engagement has included the creation of a Community Liaison Forum to ensure there is regular communication about our proposed development with local community groups, elected members and other key stakeholders.
Now that our Planning Permission in Principle application has been made we will continue to liaise with Fife Council and the wider community via the Community Liaison Forum that we’ve established for this project throughout the determination process.
Both applications are the culmination of over 12 months of work by our project team in consultation with the local community and Fife Council. The submission of these applications is an important step in the process as Pauline Mills, Land and Planning Director adds: “Our Planning Application in Principle submissions mark a significant milestone in the process to securing formal planning approval for our development proposals that will establish the framework for future detailed housing and non-residential planning applications.
“We will continue to liaise with Fife Council and the wider community via the Community Liaison Forum that we’ve established for this project throughout the determination process. Whilst we are unable to confirm at this stage when these applications will be determined by Fife Council, we are hopeful that we will receive a decision by the end of this year."
