New homes plan for the Bay gets go-ahead despite objections

A plan to build dozens of new homes on Dalgety Bay’s industrial estate has been given the go-ahead despite objections.

Muir Homes applied to Fife Council for permission to build for 44 homes on Donibristle Industrial Estate.  A previous application to build homes at Fulmar Way was refused permission in 2015.

75 objections and six letters of support were received by the council over the planning application which was approved by councillors.

Nearby business Grant Construction, which operates opposite the development site, submitted an objection to the planning application which said: “There are industrial and commercial businesses on three sides of this development, with heavy haulage operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which can only lead to complaints from new residents about disturbance that they may feel inappropriate to residential living, which is understandable since it is an industrial estate.

“We operate a haulage and construction facility and employ over 60 employees, 90 per cent of them from the West Fife area, and the last thing we want is for this housing proposal to have an adverse effect on our ability to operate from our premises, which we have done so successfully for the last 30 years.”
