Residents in Coaltown of Balgonie opposed to Fife Council’s plans to build houses on land adjacent to Lady Nina Square are calling for a second public meeting.

Concerns over the plan to build 23 new social housing homes were aired at a previous meeting in January.

Among the concerns were the lack of access and parking and the high number of additional residents (understood to be 110) that will be accommodated by the new homes.

A revised plan for the site, formally owned by the National Coal Board, has been presented, but several residents are still concerned that the revised plan does not go far enough to address the issues they have raised.

As the Gazette went to press, Coaltown of Balgonie Community Council was to meet to discuss the issues and decide on whether to call a further public meeting with Fife Council planning officials .
