LOCALS will be able to have their say on plans to build up to 550 new homes in Rosyth.

Alfred Stewart Property Foundation (ASPF) will hold a second public consultation event about its proposals for a site at Castlandhill.

It's agricultural land to the west of the M90 motorway and, as well as houses, the proposed mixed use development would include tourism, leisure uses and a public woodland park.

There would also be access roads, a route connecting to the Pilgrims Way walking route, pedestrian and cycle paths, public open space, a play area, 'green infrastructure', a landscape buffer and a sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS).

A first consultation event, handled by its agents Bidwells, was held in Rosyth in February and the design team will be on hand to answer questions and explain the proposals at a second drop-in meeting in the town.

It will take place on Thursday April 25 in the Parkgate Community Centre between 2.30pm and 6.30pm.

The developers will assess the feedback from the consultation meetings before submitting a more detailed planning application to Fife Council.

Early indications are that ASPF want to build up to 550 homes on the site.

It was named after the late businessman and property developer, Alfred Stewart.

ASPF has been run by a judicial factor, Aver chartered accountants, since 2015 due to concerns about misconduct from the trustees who were in charge of it.

It also has plans to build houses on a site between Crossford and Cairneyhill and recently put the former St Andrew Erskine Church in Dunfermline up for auction.

Back in 2022 ASPF outlined multi-million pound proposals for a 'Northern Gateway' development at Castlandhill, which envisaged 200 homes and an hotel, as well as a new Queensferry Country Park that would be more than 100 acres in size.

However, after discussions with the council they said "the original masterplan has been reconsidered".
