Work can begin on an exciting council housing proposal for Cupar now that planning permission has been granted.
A planning proposal for the development of 18 flats in St Catherine Street has been given the go-ahead, meaning that work can begin to convert the County Buildings into flats as well as a new build extension in July.
The development will consist of 8 one-bedroom flats, which will all be conversions, and 10 two-bedroom flats, two of which will be conversions and the other eight will be new build properties.
Depute Leader, Councillor David Ross said: “Now that this development has been given the go ahead it allows Fife Council to re-use and preserve a key listed building within a conservation area.
“This will undoubtedly contribute towards the regeneration of Cupar town centre as well as providing more much needed housing for the area. With approval now in place we could be looking at the first tenants moving into these homes in June 2015.”
This development will contribute towards Fife Council’s commitment to deliver 2700 new homes by 2017. The total project cost of this development is £2.6m with £764,000 coming from Scottish Government funding.
