Plans for the development of Crail Airfield, which could see it become a major development site including housing, commercial, tourism, recreation and leisure facilities and a hotel, will be available for public inspection later this month.

Representatives from Broughty Ferry planning consultants EMAC Planning will be displaying their proposals for the development of Crail Airfield and be on hand to answer questions at the drop-in session.

Late last year EMAC asked Fife Council for advice on whether an Environmental Impact Assessment of the site is needed before a formal planning application is made by Landvest PCC Ltd, which is in the early stages of considering whether to submit an application for the airfield.

Since 1960, when the Ministry of Defence left the airfield, it has been in agricultural use and the buildings used for light industry. More recently it has been the venue for car boot sales and motor sports.

The drop-in event takes place on January 29, between 4 pm and 8 pm at Crail Town Hall.
