Sites assessed by Fife Council for inclusion in the Consultative Draft Local Plan - March 2005

These March 2005 assessments are dated 3/3/05 - i.e. after the publication of consultative draft plan, and before the public presentation of the community survey. Fife Council is known to have carried out earlier assessments for some of the sites (in September 2004), but this website has only been able to obtain two of those earlier site assessments from Fife Council - so far.

During this latest round of appraisals, sites KIN006 and KIN007 have been re-assessed, with KIN006 no longer deemed suitable for development. These are the draft EFLP 'identified' sites which Fife Council is asking us to comment on, as part of the consultation process!
Earlier assessments for these sites have been included here, for useful comparison.

It is interesting to note that KIN002 is not deemed suitable for development. This was the site that was originally 'promoted' by both the landowner (in various presentations to the community in 2004) and the community council (in a letter to Fife Council, 10 March 2004).
Fife Council stated (letter to KCC 22 March 2004) that "we will ensure that [site KIN002] is fully assessed during the preparation of the Local Plan." It would be reasonable to assume, then, that Fife Council visited and assessed the site before March 2005. This website has asked Fife Council to release the results of all assessments of this site prior to March 2005 - so far without success.

The originally 'identified' sites appear to have fallen from favour, one way or another, but note that Fife Council has identified several other potential development sites for housing - details in site assessments.

It could be argued that the published consultative draft does not truly represent the current Fife Council position, as regards possible development sites. If Fife Council has now ‘identified’ new sites, as seems to be the case, then the residents of Kingsbarns should be told now, so that they may have the opportunity to respond accordingly during the consultation phase.

In a letter to Fife Council (14 October 2004), Peter Erskine stated:

"I enclose maps for both Kingsbarns and Crail just to have any potential plans on record.

"The first is for Kingsbarns, which is nearest home and farthest advanced. I do not have a satisfactory map for Crail but it is the the first two fields to the East of the A917 approaching Crail from Kingsbarns.

"I will follow up with more detailed plans subsequent to local consultation."

The Kingsbarns map provided by Peter Erskine showed sites: KIN003 KIN006 KIN008 KIN009 KIN011

In response (10 November 2004), Fife Council stated:

"Thank you for your letter of 14 October 2004.

"I can assure you that the sites have been considered for inclusion in the Consultative Draft Local Plan. ........"
