Stop the 2 new plans on the Great North Road development site


Are you against the new plans that Persimmon homes are proposing at Blairadam Fields and at the top of Seafar Drive?


Fife council planning committee met on the 30th july 2014 to decide on these 2 applications to build 63 affordable council dwellings-47 on the persimmon site and 16 to be built at the top of seafar drive which will include flats. The planning decision has been delayed as the councillors on the planning committee wish to undertake a site visit prior to making a final decision.

Do you think it has been well thought out-are these retrospective plans. have you concerns regarding over crowding and how the infrastructure is currently coping. Are you concerned regarding parking and vehicular access as it is now? Are you dissatisfied regarding the lack of green and safe space our children have currently? Are you concerned that your child may not obtain a council nursery place and that you could be offered a place in cowdenbeath for example. Are the schools at full capacity? Is the Medical practice able to take on more patients without compromising anyone's health?

  • Caroline Fagan I would like to say that I would be oblivious to all the drainage problems people are enduring and the very fact that this land in in very close proximity to former mining sites, and as soon as the mines were closed the land was used for landfilling. It is not the lush green farming fields I was led to believe and feel I have been lured into purchasing a property in a private development with a reasonable amount of housing planned. I have no qualms regarding affordable housing but feel I should have been given a choice before completing on my property purchase. I want the plans to be at least scaled back and more consideration given regarding appropriate sized green space where our children can play safely within an eyeshot of their parents and does not disturb neighbouring properties. Kelty is a great place-it is a proud place and why shouldn't it be:)

  • Joan Kirkland For far too long kelty has been treated like a poor relation it is about time it received a lot more respect and service from those who are after all servants. Coaltown of Balgonie planning proposal for 27 additional houses they get a full water pressure test. Kelty needs this and all the old water pipes and sewage and drainage connections brought up to date and repaired and investigated as a matter of urgency. Shameful!

  • Asim Azfer Too much of congestion, the essence of Kelty will fade away..
