The site of Kirkcaldy’s former maternity hospital is set to be transformed into a housing development.
Councillors are to consider plans for 41 homes, and the conversion of the mansion house into flats, seven years after the last expectant mothers were admitted.
Forth Park was the town’s traditional maternity home, delivering thousands of babies since 1932 until it closed in 2012 and moved into a new purpose built unit in the new wing of Victoria Hospital.
