STEPHENS and their bridies are on the move and more demolition is set to take place in Inverkeithing’s regeneration. 

The bakers are moving to new premises on Hillend Road and have submitted plans to Fife Council as part of the multi-million pound transformation of Fraser Avenue. 

Three units are being built to replace the premises on the street occupied by Stephens, Shad Superstore and Goodfryers Chip Shop.

And the bulldozers will be back with the land being prepared for the next section, which will eventually see 236 council flats demolished and replaced in four phases by 189 modern homes. 

Inverkeithing councillor Alice McGarry said: “The first phase is complete, they’re starting on the demolition of the second phase next week and the shops should be finished in the next month or so. 

“It’s not been without it’s difficulties, all the demolition and building work has been quite traumatic for the people who live in the Spittalfield and Spencerfield areas, but the hope is it’s going to be much better in the long run.”

The £8.9 million second phase will see a further 61 homes built as part of the masterplan to transform Fraser Avenue.
