A CONVENIENCE store is set to open in the former Ex-Servicemen's Club building in Rosyth.

Permission has been granted in March 2021 to change the use of the building into flats, a shop and an office.

Now a planning application has been lodged with Fife Council asking for permission for three illuminated signs and three poster boxes to be put up at the site at the roundabout between Admiralty Road and Queensferry Road.

The latest proposals reveal the store will be a USave Convenience store with the new signs providing branded signage around the premises.

The large building has been empty since November 2017 after the long-standing West Fife social club, which also came under the British Legion umbrella, ceased trading after being placed in the hands of a liquidator.

It was put up for sale in January 2018 for offers over £120,000 and was marketed as a development opportunity.

When the original planning consent was granted, one of the conditions was that the hours of operation of the retail unit will be restricted to between 7am and 10pm.
