Regeneration of Glenrothes paper mill site continues with plans for 97 homes

Plans have been submitted for a further 97 new homes on the site of the former Tullis Russell works in Glenrothes.

Campion Homes wants to deliver a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached houses.

A design statement submitted to Fife Council stated: “The development will provide a positive and active frontage to Cadham Road, with a variation in building lines offering visual interest as well as aligning with what is already present on the north side of the road.

“The principal road connection through the site from Cadham Road, as well as the other internal roads, will have trees and hedgerows included adjacent to them to enhance the overall quality of development present on this site.”

The proposal, designed by Oliver + Robb Architects, forms part of a residential-led mixed-use development of the 130-acre site, formerly home to a water treatment plant.

The overall project will deliver up to 850 new homes, a care home and retirement village, as well as new commercial, retail and leisure space.

Kingdom Housing Association started work on 85 affordable new homes for social rent at the site at the beginning of the year.
