Glenrothes & Area Heritage Centre could soon have a new home.

A planning application has been submitted to Fife Council seeking permission to move the facility from its current home at 18 Lyon Way to the location of the old McDonald’s Restaurant next to Rothes Halls.

The former restaurant has lain vacant in the Kingdom Centre since McDonald’s shut its doors in 2003.
