Public asked for input on Scotia Homes’ plans for 100 new homes in Fife
Members of the public have been asked to help shape plans to build around 100 new homes on the site of the former Madras College Kilrymont Road campus in St Andrews.
The first of two online engagement events is due to be held this week by developer Scotia Homes, which is set to bring forward a detailed planning application for the former school building.
Scotia Homes submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) on October 11 to Fife Council for this planned residential development which will form a key part of the overall site’s mixed-use re-development proposals, currently being advanced by Scotsman Developments Ltd.
The plans are running alongside Scotsman Development Limited’s wider plans for a mixed-use development concentrating on the former school buildings and surrounding area.
Martin Forbes, land and planning manager at Scotia Homes, said: “This marks an exciting time as we bring forward plans to develop around 100 high-quality homes, including 30% affordable, on the playing fields at the former Madras College in St Andrews.
“North-east Fife is a key growth area for Scotia, and I am delighted to be able to bring forward our plans to the local community over the coming months.”
An online live chat session has been scheduled for today from 3pm to 7pm, when people can talk directly to the project team.
A second session has been arranged for February 4, again between 3pm and 7pm.
A website has been set up where members of the public can view the plans and provide feedback.
