Have your say

Kinghorn residents are being urged to attend a meeting to make their views known on a new housing development for the town.

A pre planning drop-in session to outline the proposals by Lovell Homes for 133 three, four and five-bedroomed properties on the site of the former tannery by Kinghorn Loch will take place in Kinghorn Community Centre on Wednesday from 3-7.00 p.m.

And anyone who would like to see the outline plans for Lochside Grange as it will be called, and have their say is invited to pop in to the session to speak to the three Lovell representatives who will be there.

Glasgow-based Lovell Homes bought the site last month after the previous owners went into liquidation and packets of land were sold off by the administrators.

Helen Dow, regional sales manager, explained: “We are planning 133 quality homes, but these plans have not been finalised and that’s why we want people to come along and look at the site plans and tell us what they think.”

She said that the company did not intend to resurrect previous plans for a care home which caused controversy last time around.

Councillor Susan Leslie welcomed the chance for locals to have an input.

“If Lovell is going to be open and honest like this it bodes well for the future,” she said.
