The public have been given their first glimpse of what the proposed new £10.5 million Glenrothes Care Village will look like.

The development is earmarked for the former Napier Road health centre site and the existing South Parks care home.

Based on a similar care village already given the go-ahead for Kirkcaldy, phase one of the proposal will comprise of a 60-bed care home facility, costing £6.65 million, which will also include communal gardens, community drop-in centre and on-sight catering facilities has already been granted planning approval ‘in principle’ when the initial proposal came before councillors in May this year.

A second phase, expected to cost £3.85 million, will provide 30 dwellings consisting of one and two-bed apartments.

A full planning application is expected to be presented the Central Area Planning Committee when it sits next month.

Louise Bell, service manager for social work told councillors should full approval be granted construction would likely start in spring 2015 with completion of the second phase expected by spring the following year.

The village is set to replace existing facilities at South Parks and Woodside and will include a phased relocation for both sets of residents.
