Lochgelly developer receives boost from Fife Council
Fife Council has given a boost to proposals for a large housing development planned for Lochgelly as developers Omnivale Limited were told that a separate environmental impact assessment (EIA) is not necessary.
Omnivale had previously submitted a screening option request to the council ahead of its application to build 142 new homes and associated facilities on land to the south of The Avenue.
However, Fife Council has agreed with the developer’s view that the land is not a “sensitive” site under planning regulations and that a specific EIA will not be required, The Courier reports.
The location is currently used to agricultural purposes, and two access points are included in the plans from The Avenue itself.
