Residents living close to the controversial Lomond Quarry are eagerly awaiting a specialist report carried out on their properties.

An independent structural engineer’s report on 17 earmarked properties has now been completed, the findings of which will be put before councillors at today’s, (Wednesday), Glenrothes Area Committee .

Yvonne Duncan, Lomond Quarry Action Group chairman and whose property was one of those surveyed, said no one has yet been informed of the consultants findings.

“There is widespread concern over the potential damage that continued blasting has, and will continue to have, on our homes, we are very keen to read the consultant’s initial findings,” she told the Gazette.

“We are also calling for long-term continued monitoring of our properties to assess the structural effects blasting will have.”

Councillors will also be updated on a mediation process between residents, Fife council and quarry owners Skene Group.

There will also be a progress report on possible cognitive behaviour therapy.
