Pro­pos­als lodged for 43 homes

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

A FOR­MER in­dus­trial site on the out­skirts of Thornton could soon be trans­formed into a hous­ing es­tate.

Plans have been sub­mit­ted by Fife Coun­cil to trans­form the lo­cal author­ity’s for­mer roads main­te­nance yard into a lo­ca­tion for 43 af­ford­able prop­er­ties.

Based along Strathore Road, on the west­ern edge of the vil­lage, de­vel­op­ers hope to build a va­ri­ety of semi-de­tached and ter­raced one and two-storey homes at the site.

Two large open spaces, pri­vate park­ing and ad­di­tional visi­tor park­ing has also been in­cor­po­rated into pro­vi­sional de­signs for the es­tate.

A de­sign state­ment sub­mit­ted as part of the ap­pli­ca­tion states: “The pro­pos­als suc­cess­fully ad­dress in­fra­struc­ture issues, site char­ac­ter­is­tics and lo­ca­tional con­text.

“Over­all, it is con­sid­ered that the de­sign ap­proach adopted is a well-con­sid­ered and ap­pro­pri­ate re­sponse to the site con­straints and pro­vides a pos­i­tive de­sign so­lu­tion.”
