Aberdour housing developments refused by councillors

Plans for two major housing developments in the Fife village of Aberdour have been rejected by councillors.

Fife Council’s west planning committee met at Dunfermline City Chambers to discuss CALA’s proposal for 85 new homes on a field at the east of the village and Campion Homes’ bid to build 80 homes beside Nether Bouprie Farm to the west.

The CALA development had been recommended for approval, with council planners arguing it was needed to help meet a shortfall in housing land.

However councillors unanimously rejected the plans after seeing for themselves the traffic congestion experienced on the A921 at the east of the village during a site visit earlier in the day.

The Campion proposal was also rejected after it had been recommended for refusal.
