Developer Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has submitted two applications for planning permission in principle for a proposed mixed-use development of 1,400 homes at Halbeath, a former mining village north-east of Dunfermline in Fife.

One application is for the entire 80-hectare site and the other is for the first phase of the development and involves 340 homes on a 17-hectare area on the west side of the location, which is earmarked for the North Dunfermline Strategic Development Area.

The scheme will provide 25 per cent affordable housing in addition to a community core, a new primary school and land for economic development.

The project has been designed to sit within a mix of amenity open space, woodlands, hedgerows and meadows.

The scheme also includes a Northern Link Road, which will run north-west to south-east across the site, where it will link with a new railway bridge provided by Fife Council.
