  BARNS FARM - CALL FOR COMMENTS 

 

You are invited to contact the Community Council with your views on the possible sale of fields by Shell UK at Barns Farm, Dalgety Bay.

We would also like to hear your opinion on various options for these fields which are located south of the farm and adjacent to the church at the eastern entrance to the town.  

Shell has previously marketed these fields as a residential development opportunity and belatedly are now conducting a public engagement on the  fields which they state are surplus to their requirements.
Over the past few years, the Community Council has held a number of Public Meetings on the development of Local Plans, with the result that they do not include any development proposals for these fields. Following representations made,it is the Community Council's view through the planning process, that the fields should remain as open space and agricultural land, and be sold as such with the undertaking that no housing development be permitted.  

Contact on this issue can be made to the Community Council by emailing your views and opinion to the Secretary jeanette.gray1@btopenworld.com

The Chair reported on his conversation with John Raine from Shell UK
No information was forthcoming on their decision about the sale of the fields for housing. It still remains on hold. As the Chair will be holding a Jubilee Committee meeting on the evening of Thursday 11 June, John McCall agreed to attend the Mossmorran and Braefoot Bay Safety and Liaison Committee Meeting that same evening. It was agreed that Persimmon Homes be contacted to ascertain the position on their option to buy the land from Shell UK and planning position following their PAN and public consultation earlier this year.
Support was given to Roy Green on producing a private website petition to the Scottish Government objecting to proposed housing developments at Main Street, Aberdour, Barns Farm, Dalgety Bay and Spencerfield, Inverkeithing.
Cllr Dempsey reported that the West Area Committee at their meeting on 20 May recommended the removal in a report by Planning Officers that these sites are  supported and contribute to the SESplan.
