Plans lodged for innovative community ‘green’ at Inverkeithing
7N Architects have filed a detailed planning application for the construction of 16 new homes at Manse Road, Inverkeithing, on behalf of Kingdom Housing Association.

The homes will be delivered in partnership with landscape architects Rankin Fraser in order to integrate the homes with public and private grounds to create a safe and comfortable family friendly environment.

In a statement 7N wrote: “The proposals will bring much needed quality family housing to the area and will create a new gathering and play space for the community at a highpoint with elevated views over the Firth of Forth. The pitched roof forms and modulated dormers are a response to the surrounding existing built fabric as well as to the sloping topography of the site to harness the extraordinary easterly views.”

7N are also delivering a separate regeneration package for Inverkeithing's Fraser Avenue.

Work should get underway on the project by the autumn.

Why anyone would build 'family housing' that close to a motorway, of which, is extremely busy with heavy industrial traffic is beyond me.

A terrace! A real actual terrace! Not a jumble of detached homes thrown around randomly with blank walls and dead ends everywhere.

I like it.

I'm all for breaking down the monotony of pavement-road-pavement but have you ever driven round a shared surface residential scheme? No-one has a clue what to do? Ah ... this must the road bit ... Nope that's the neighbors herb garden .... Sorry !

D to the R - That's the whole idea of shared surfaces. Makes you slow down and think rather than charge rtound at 30mph. Streets for everyone - not just cars!
