Up to 80 new homes could be built in the Fife village of Windygates if new proposals are approved by councillors.

Campion Homes has submitted a planning application to Fife Council to develop land north of Cameron Crescent, known locally as the Temple.

The firm wants to build a mixture of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties with a range of designs by Davidson Baxter Partnership.

Under local authority guidelines, 10% of the properties would be affordable homes built for Kingdom Housing Association.

The site is arable land but is marked as suitable for development in the Fife Local Plan.

If approved, access to the site will be via an existing road at Cameron Crescent.

Meanwhile, pedestrian access would be via paths on Fa-latch Road on the eastern boundary and Durie Place to the south east.

A design statement from Campion Homes said: “The layout is generous in terms of its open aspects, with wellmaintained and managed external spaces.

“Site landscaping will also be designed and managed for a long-term contribution to the setting. The mix of housing will assist in generating a community feel and interaction between all family and age groups.”
