Plans for a new housing development on the outskirts of Dairsie have been revealed.

Dunfermline-based Campion Homes are seeking planning permission to build 29 houses, including six affordable homes, on a site to the south of the village’s Osnaburgh Court.

The development will comprise a mix of three, four and five bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced houses ranging between one and 1.5 storeys in height.

But already the proposal has attracted a range of objections from local residents and businesses.

They express concerns about flooding and the location of the SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Scheme) basin, around 200 metres to the south on the eastern side of Station Road near Wester Dron Farm.

Residents say they have been affected by flooding over the years, including sewage overflow, and express concerns that the new measures will exacerbate the situation.

One objector describes Campion’s proposal as “non-viable”.

Another expresses concerns about the impact on the residents of Osnaburgh Court from the height and placement of the houses.
