Cupar North Planning Consultation

Welcome to our consultation on the proposed development and Planning Application in Principle of 1,480 homes on land north of Cupar which will be contained by the proposed Relief Road that connects the A91 either side of the settlement.

The purpose of this consultation is to present our plans for the creation of a new high-quality residential development, in line with the aspirations of the Council’s Local Development Plan and the allocation of the Cupar North Strategic Development Area.

This website is part of pre-application consultation before a planning application is submitted to Fife Council in the coming months. This consultation would normally be in the form of a public exhibition in a local venue.  Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions this public event is not possible, and an online solution has been provided to replace it. This is in keeping with recent legislation and guidance from the Scottish Government.

We have set out below the background to the proposals, identifying our vision for the site and how the proposed masterplan has been developed, with the aim of maximising the opportunity to deliver a high-quality place that responds directly to its context and technical requirements for delivery.

We are inviting the local community and other stakeholders to review our emerging proposals before a planning application is submitted to Fife Council.  We would very much welcome your feedback and comments.

To assist, we have provided a Comments Form which seeks to gather the views of those participating in the consultation.  Your feedback will help to inform our eventual planning submission to Fife Council.

In addition, on Wednesday 16th June, between 1pm and 7pm, we will be hosting a live consultation session via the ‘live chat’ section of this website with members of the project team available to answer any questions that you may have.

Questions can also be posed through email or by contacting our project representatives directly and we will seek to respond as quickly as possible to any questions raised.  Thereafter, the presentation will be available to view for a period of two weeks (closing on Friday 25th June), where comments can still be submitted and where necessary, responded to.

Comments received will be used to evolve the proposal and while comments will be anonymously logged and provided to Fife Council as part of the Pre-Application Consultation (PAC) Report, they will not constitute formal comments on the proposal. Formal comments must be submitted directly to Fife Council once the planning application has been submitted.
