Following the marketing of the former school site by Fife Council for development purposes, Scotsman Developments Ltd have announced proposals for the delivery of a new mixed-use development at the former Madras College campus on Kilrymont Road, St Andrews.
Proposals from Scotsman Developments Ltd include new housing (including 30 per cent affordable homes) and the retention and re-use of existing listed school buildings for mixed-uses comprising residential, local retail and leisure.
As a major planning application, a Proposal of Application Notice (noting intent to submit a planning application following a minimum 12-weeks of community consultation) has been submitted to Fife Council. Two web-based community consultation events will occur as outlined below, adhering to Scottish Government guidance on consultations, allowing the community to provide feedback on and shape the proposals.
- Event 1: Thursday 19thAugust (14:00 – 16:00) and (17:00 – 19:00)
- Event 2: Wednesday 22nd September (14:00 – 16:00) and (17:00 – 19:00)
A dedicated project website has been set-up at www.kilrymont.co.uk and will go live in advance of the consultation
Commenting on these proposals David Scanlon from Scotsman Developments Ltd said: “This exciting and ambitious scheme will serve to regenerate the current redundant site, including retaining and re-using the existing listed school buildings, which I know will be greatly welcomed by the local community.
“Development will deliver much-needed housing, including affordable homes, local retail and leisure uses. “We’re looking forward to consulting widely with the local community and key stakeholders over the coming months, which will include two digital consultation events, and are keen to hear their views in shaping proposals for this significant site.”
The group is also currently progressing plans for a new purpose-built care home facility for the Gibson Trust at St Andrews West.
