Home Economy St Andrews West development reaches major planning milestone
Pre-application planning notice submitted for 88-hectare site
A significant milestone has been reached for the development of St Andrews West with the submission of a Pre-Application Notice (PAN) to Fife Council’s Planning Department this week by the St Andrews West LLP.
The 88-hectare site on the West of St Andrews is proposed for a mix of uses including residential, education and business.
The PAN, a statutory document, will provide an outline of the development as well as detailing the consultation process to be undertaken prior to the formal planning submission.
Details of the first public consultation event, due to take place in mid to late February, will be announced shortly at which members of the public will be given the opportunity to meet the developers and their consultant team and to discuss this significant development for the town.
It is hoped that St Andrews’ residents and those who work within and have an interest in the town, will play an active part in shaping this development site.
David Wardrop, planning consultant and spokesperson for St Andrews West LLP, said: “This is an exciting stage for St Andrews West which has been many years in the planning. We very much look forward to gaining feedback from the community on their vision for the development and hope that many people will actively engage with this consultation process to ensure the final outcome reflects the wishes of the St Andrews community.
“This development provides an opportunity to satisfy the needs and aspirations of everyone who lives, works and learns in St Andrews and enhance what is already one of the most desirable places to live and work in Scotland.”
A new website is to be launched at the end of the month with regular updates from the development team. A further public exhibition will be arranged in early Summer 2017.
