Kingseat Fife

Land west of Kingseat Road - Kingseat - Fife

We have secured a resolution to grant planning consent, subject to finalising our Section 75 Agreement with Fife Council, for a new development of 59 high-quality family homes on land at the junction of Kingseat Road and B912, Kingseat in Fife.

  • Overview

    We have secured a resolution to grant detailed planning consent, subject to confirming our Section 75 Agreement with Fife Council, for a new development of 59 high-quality homes on land at the junction of Kingseat Road and B912, Kingseat.

    The site for our new development is outlined in red on the map pictured right.

    The site has been allocated in the proposed Local Development Plan for Fife, FIFEplan.  This has the status of a “proposed plan”, and while it has been approved by Fife Council it requires to be examined and approved by the Scottish Government prior to being adopted. 

  • About the site

    The site lies on the south-west boundary of Kingseat, and is currently used as farmland.  The site slopes gently, from north-east to south-west and has far-reaching views across to the Forth estuary.  It will connect to the village of Kingseat through two vehicular accesses and further pedestrian routes.

  • What's proposed

    We will build 59 new homes, ranging in size from cottage flats to semi-detached and detached family homes. We will also provide 25% affordable housing, which may either be managed by a local Housing Association or Fife Council.

    Our development layout benefits from the following features that aims to respond to key design principles that are outlined in the Local Development Plan (LDP) :
    •         Creation of more rational parking in the north-east corner of the site
    •         Better use of open space
    •         Improved connectivity between the development and the Main Street
    •         Additional footpath links to maximise local connectivity to Kingseat
    •         Proposed landscape belt on the southern boundary has been increased, and consideration will be given to species that are planted in key areas for screening
    •         Existing hedgerow on the northern boundary to be retained where possible
    •         Off-street & on-street parking that responds to Transport and Urban Planning guidance not to increase driveways to allow 3 in-curtilage parking spaces per home
    •         Shared pedestrian and vehicle surfaces and junctions to act as natural traffic calming throughout the development

  • Community Benefits

    Community benefits will be established as the planning process progresses, and through dialogue with Fife Council we will agree the type of infrastructure improvements that are required as a result of the development of this site.  The additional residents this site will provide for Kingseat should assist in maintaining the viability of the many local facilities.

    Latest news

    Following our resolution to grant detailed planning consent earlier this year, we are working with Kingseat Community Council on our public art strategy to ensure that our development complies with 'Making Fife's Places' supplementary planning guidance that is designed to improve the landscape setting of new developments. 

    We are also in the process of finalising our Section 75 Agreement with Fife Council in relation to the community benefits that we will deliver as part of our commitment to this development.  We hope to conclude these negotiations as efficiently as possible to allow the planning permission to be issued later this year, and for us to start construction on-site in early 2017.
