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
