Developer to consult with community in coming weeks to shape proposals

A PROPOSED residential development on the south-west boundary of Cupar could provide much needed new family housing for the town.

CALA Homes (East) has lodged proposals for consultation with the local community. The upmarket homebuilder is seeking to create a development of between 80 to 100 homes on land at Ferryfield, south east of Brighton Road. The new development would create a mix of family homes to meet a wide range of local housing demand, with 25% of the build also dedicated to affordable houses with large areas of open space.

A Proposal of Application Notice (PAN), which describes CALA’s consultation proposals, provides a clear outline of its willingness to meet with members of the local community at the earliest possible stages.

Steven Cooper, Planning Manager with CALA Homes (East) said: “This represents the first stage in the planning process.

“This is an opportunity for a discussion about Cupar’s future. We believe that this proposal is of the right scale for Cupar at this time and will complement the wider strategy for the growth of the town.

“It’s a great opportunity to provide much needed quality family housing and to stimulate investment in Cupar. We’re keen to engage with locals at the earliest possible stage to allow for their feedback and make certain that we can take their views on board.”

Letters have been sent out to the community council and neighbouring properties to seek comment on the proposals and invite them to a public event to discuss the plans. A public event, with exhibition boards detailing the proposals, will be held at the Corn Exchange on Catherine Street between 3.00pm and 8.00pm on Thursday, March 29. It will be attended by CALA staff and representatives who will be on hand to answer any questions raised.

Steven added: “Our plans for community engagement are something we are absolutely committed to and believe in.

“There has been very little development in Cupar in recent years, and consequently inward investment has stalled. We are particularly interested to hear about people’s thoughts on the future of Cupar, and wider objectives for its growth.”

The development would include houses of all sizes, with a focus on quality family homes. A quarter of the homes would be affordable housing and the development would also include areas of amenity open space and new landscape planting.
