Archived news: published on Thursday 21 Sep 2017 by Fife Council
Fife Council adopted FIFEplan, Fife’s Local Development Plan, on 21 September 2017, after Scottish Ministers confirmed the Council could do so. The two modifications that the Scottish Minister asked for have been made to the Plan, allowing the Council to proceed to adopt the plan.
Councillor Altany Craik, Convener of the Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning & Transportation Committee, said:“This is the last step in producing Fife’s first Local Development Plan and I acknowledge the involvement of all those who took part in its preparation, particularly the communities and individuals who got involved.”
The adopted FIFEplan, now forms part of Fife’s Development Plan.
Bill Lindsay, Development Plan Service Manager, said:“The plan sets out the planning policies and proposals for the development and use of land across the Kingdom. Our focus now moves to working with the development sector, communities and other stakeholders to deliver the plan’s proposals for strategic development, supporting new housing development and the infrastructure for growth.”
FIFEplan replaces existing local plans. A copy of the Plan is available to view at the Council’s planning office, Kingdom House, Kingdom Ave, Glenrothes. KY7 5LY and can be accessed on line at www.fifedirect.org.uk/fifeplan and on line at Fife Council’s public libraries.
