Saw tooth Inverkeithing homes win outline approval
May 5 2016189 affordable homes centred on Fraser Avenue, Inverkeithing, has secured planning permission in principle – including the demolition of 236 existing properties.
Drawn up by 7N Architects on behalf of Kingdom Housing Association the scheme will include shops, a village green and play park whilst improving pedestrian connectivity through the area.
Taking their cue from existing homes in the estate 7N said: “At Spencerfield, to the east of the site, the predominant building type is two storey terraced housing that is clad in a light grey harling. The new housing at Fraser Avenue seeks to utilise this terraced typology and improve on it.
“The proposals will provide better defined public and private space and utilise a pitched roofscape which will deal with the challenging site topography in a more refined way. In an acknowledgement of the colour palette of the surrounding area, some of the terraces will be clad in a light grey brick, referencing the harling finish but providing a rich surface finish which weathers better of time.”
Site clearance is expected to get underway from September with phased completion expected through to 2021.
