A new planning application to Fife Council from Kirkcaldy businessman Asif Hussain would see the Queens Hotel in Cardenden converted into a ten-bedroom housing unit.

Mr Hussain’s company, King Enterprises, wants to change the use of the Derran Drive property into a house in multiple occupation (HMO). An HMO is a house or flat where three or more unrelated people share facilities. In Fife, such a use requires a licence.

Councillors will consider the application in due course
