Planners consider fate of Inverkeithing regeneration
Fife Council planners have begun deliberations on regeneration proposals for a 7N conceived masterplan for the Fraser Avenue area of Inverkeithing, an area which is currently ranked in the lowest 15 per cent most deprived areas of the country.

Assuming a favourable response site clearance for phase one is expected to get underway from September, allowing delivery of 53 homes together with associated public realm work by Rankin Fraser landscape architects.

In a statement the architects said: “In acknowledging the failed model of 3-storey communally accessed blocks of flats currently occupying the site, the proposals seek to transform the area by creating an integrated and cohesive new place that is woven into the existing fabric of the wider area through improved connectivity and increased permeability.

“Inspired by the little known Rosyth Garden City less than a mile away, and the principles established by Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City Movement from the turn of the 20th Century, the development will provide lower density, comfortable, secure new terraced homes for existing residents with private front and back gardens, well planned open space within easy walking distance and open tree-lined public streets.”

Integrated public artwork will also trace the route of the former Halbeath Railway dating from 1780 which once connected Halbeath Colliery on the outskirts of Dunfermline to a pier in Inverkeithing.

I really like to look of that. By the sounds of it the area needs it. 7N are a great choice as well. Do it Fife!
