A former bank in a Fife town is set to become a take-away after councillors approved a planning application.

The decision will mean a new lease of life for the informer Bank of Scotland building at 34 High Street, Kinghorn. It has sat empty for a number of years since the bank quit now. A planning application lodged by Kinghorn based Sava Estates for a change of use to a hot food takeaway was approved this week.

A supporting statement submitted as part of the planning application said: “Marketing has failed to generate any interest other than from hot food operators. The new takeaway will see a new eating outlet introduced into the area and a vacant unit re-cycled which otherwise may have remained vacant for some time and become a disamenity in the streetscape. It will generate rates for the local authority, see investment in the area and offer job opportunities to local residents.”
