FIFE Council have started construction on the £1.8 million project to bring small business units to Dalgety Bay.

Proposals to build the work spaces at Hillend and Donibristle Industrial Estate were approved in November last year.

The build is expected to be completed by the end of this year and it's expected that 35 jobs will be created or sustained.

Councillor Altany Craik, convener of Fife Council's economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation committee, said: “These new units are targeted at existing and new businesses, whether they are already in Fife or looking to locate within the Kingdom. We have been working on regeneration of this area, and across South West Fife delivering modern business units to meet the changing needs for the 21st century."

Given its location near to the trunk road network and local railway station's, the estate has proved popular with businesses in recent years.

The new development is being made up of six units in total, along with an access road, car parking and landscaping.

The units will range in size, providing in total 800 sqm (8,611 sqft) of new business space to help meet the demand within the local market for modern, fit for purpose business accommodation.

Enquiries on pre-letting are welcomed via
