Plans for new pizza restaurant in Kirkcaldy High Street refused
Plans to open a new pizza restaurant in Kirkcaldy High Street have been refused.
Fife Council has rejected the application to turn the former Komandor store - next to Manifesto - into a food place, Woody’s Pizza, at 69 High Street.
Mr Ian Brown, of West Fergus Place, had applied for a change of use to bring the empty shop back into use as a wood-fired pizza restaurant with specialist coffees and craft beers.
The shop forms part of the Category B Listed Whytehouse Mansion residential flats.
The applicant also proposed restoring the essential architectural character and listed-building status of the premises whilst also upgrading them
But planning officers refused the application over concerns the proposed extraction system for the restaurant “ could give rise to potential adverse and unacceptable residential amenity impacts in terms of potential odour/smoke/noise pollution.”They ruled that “insufficient information has been submitted” to demonstrate the system proposed would not be detrimental.
