The company wants to transform the site with 80 new homes which would consist of 73 homes plus eight affordable homes, built for Kingdom Housing Association.
The site would include family homes and bungalows ranging from two to five bedrooms.
In a planning statement, the company said the development would “make a significant contribution to meeting housing needs in general across Fife. “
It also said developing the site”need not generate adverse impacts on existing services and infrastructure and will not adversely affect the amenity of existing or future residents.”
The application will be considered in due course.
