Affordable housing proposal
PLANS have been revealed to turn land once at the heart of Kirkcaldy’s linoleum i ndustry i nto an affordable housing estate.
About 161 properties could be built at Nairn Street by Larbert-based Springfield Properties.
The vacant site was the home of Nairn’s linoleum works and forms part of the wider Victoria Road regeneration area.
Most buildings were demolished in the 1980s, with the last one taken down in 2014.
If t he green light i s given, houses and flats will be built on 8.4 acres.
The energy-efficient homes would be managed by Kingdom Housing Association.
In its submission to Fife Council, Springfield Properties said the proposals include a mix of house types which are in “demand in the local area to address affordable needs”.
It said: “By bringing a brownfield site back into productive use, the proposal will also help reduce the pressure for the release of greenfield land for housing development.”
