Major development next to popular park

A major development aims to transform Lochore Meadows into a leading Scottish tourist attraction.

A proposed planning application notice has been lodged with Fife Council which looks to introduce 80 new holiday lodges, a café, office, retail space and other amenities to the land north of the Meedies’ western access.

It includes converting an agricultural shed on the Kelty side of the park into a cafe, office, retail and amenity facilities.

The plans have been lodged by W Thomson and Sons and cover an area next to the Fife Council-owned land which forms the 1,200 acre country park.

The site is positioned off the B996 on the opposite side of the country park.

There are plans to build a new car park and site access to deal with the increase in visitors.

The planning application notice was agreed this week, and a planning application will follow in due course.
