1,200-home Kirkcaldy masterplan approved
A masterplan to deliver around 1,200 homes, a primary school, and retail units in Kirkcaldy has been approved by councillors.
An application from CALA Management was submitted for the 250-acre site at Invertiel and Tyrie farms, stretching from Kinghorn Road to Balwearie Golf Club, which is currently used as agricultural land from the two farms.
The proposal was given the green light this week by Fife Council’s central and west planning committee.
Fife Council planner William Shand said an area of mixed-use within the development could accommodate a health centre, but discussions would have to take place with NHS Fife.
Councillors heard it would be around three years before construction begins.
Planning permission in principle was given on condition of a legal agreement securing contribution of £140,000 for strategic transport interventions, £521,300 for the modular primary school, almost £11 million for the permanent new primary school and contributions for secondary education and public art.
