CALA steps forward with detailed vision for 85 Aberdour homes

Plans have been submitted to bring new homes to a coastal Fife village.

CALA Homes (East) has lodged a detailed blueprint with Fife Council for 85 homes to the south of Aberdour Main Street, including 25% affordable housing.

The housebuilder’s plans, which incorporate extensive open space to reflect the semi-rural setting on the eastern edge of Aberdour, follow on from the approval of Planning Permission in Principle, granted in March 2019.

CALA said the layout has been sensitively designed to ensure that views across the development towards both Inchcolm Abbey and Aberdour Obelisk are maintained.

Aberdour’s Main Street will also be widened along the frontage of the site to provide additional on-street parking bays.

Steven Cooper, planning manager at CALA Homes (East), said: “We have been working hard to ensure that the proposal meets the various requirements of the existing planning permission.

“We are confident that what we are putting forward is a sensitively designed development that will fully reflect its location on the fringes of Aberdour.

“The proposal will provide a variety of new homes, ranging from two-bedroom cottage flats, three-bedroom terrace, three-bedroom semi-detached, and four and five-bedroom detached homes, with the ability to accommodate home working. The homes shall also include solar panels to achieve up to A rating.

“The site is exceptionally well connected, with bus stops and the railway station within a short walk, and the local primary school also in close proximity. We have been inundated with enquiries, including local residents, about the new homes from those looking to secure a new home in Aberdour.”

As part of the existing planning permission, CALA will make a financial contribution towards Aberdour Primary School, provide new off-site pedestrian links, and contribute towards strategic transport projects in the area.
