Fife village set for growth with plans for 63 homes
February 21 2023
A bid to expand the Fife village of Milton of Balgonie has been mounted by Ediston and EMA Architecture & Design.
59 houses and four cottage flats are proposed for arable land south of Main Street, of which 10% would be classed as affordable, on a site identified as suitable for housing in the Local Development Plan.
Incorporating open space and a play area the proposals call for a new access road to be routed off Main Street and a separate pedestrian connection with streets aligned to ensure through views of the village.
Outlining their proposals EMA wrote: "A central node is formed in the centre of the site, located along a view corridor from Main Street, through the site to the River Leven corridor to the south. This anchors the proposal in its context and maintains some of the existing character along Main Street.
"Tree planting along the primary street, and the arrangement of frontages, will create a varied and attractive streetscape. Tree planting will also be used to transition between built forms and the proposed open space to the south of the site."
To retain a sense of place a stone boundary wall and abandoned well will be retained and incorporated as character features.
Just wat did the owners/ occupiers do to deserve this torture?
They will need to buy Jeeps to cope with the traffic calming -- and why would the be rushing in the first place?
To get round the development and onto the main road -- I know electric cars are coming but how much CO2 will be wasted in the meantime?
Shocking development at every level -- looks as if it was phoned in by the work experience bloke / blokess.
