Planning Application could spoil Aberdour's award winning railway station

A planning application has been submitted to Fife Council to build flats on the piece of ground between Main Street and the Railway Station which is presently wooded. The planning application can be viewed on Fife Council's planning website, no. 10/00615/FULL, where comments can be made.

We need more affordable housing and this site represents an opportunity to provide this within the village boundary.

Before the anti-brigade get going and start their usual comments it may help to join this village together and start to break down the easter wester divide.

Bring it on if you get planning permission blocked by the snobs...

Kate Sutcliffe says

As an observer, one can't help but wonder how well the above comment fails to achieve its implied desires to promote unity and tolerance.

Maybe workingclass zero should look at how his/her own statements propagate division and snobbery - or are the 'tinks' and 'gypos' not worth your regard as fellow human beings.

Regarding the flats - if built to fit in with the character of the village I see no reason why they should be considered detrimental to what on the road aspect is a dead-area of the village. Let's face it there are plenty of woods around the village.

But as a ex-pat I guess my opinion is fairly obsolete - just felt urged to respond to the above vituperation.

I'm all for affordable housing, but does anyone know the price range of these?

William Dryburgh says

I believe that if you have something justifiable to say on ANY subject you should have the honesty to append your name. Not hide behind pseudonymns and nicknames. Stand up and be counted! Willie Dryburgh, Chair, Aberdour Community Council (though not representing ACC in this comment).

THESE HOUSES WILL NEVER BE AFFORDABLE MA YOU HAVE SAID IN OTHER COMMENTS THAT YOU ARE NOT OLD ENOUGHT OT VOTE OR STAND FOR THE CC HOW CAN YOU BUY A HOUSE THEN !!!

Modhail Ainm says

Mr Dryburgh, I have made a valid point. I can't see a problem with that.

Hazel Band, I never said I was wanting to purchase a house. I was simply expressing my view that I support affordable housing, and that there was no guarantee that these would be affordable to many.

James Bell says

Of the reasons people want to move to Aberdour is because it is pretty. The problem is that by permitting such construction we end up slowly erroding the beauty of the place. Whose interests does this kind of development serve anyway? Not mine.

I think there is a great strength in preserving things. The idea that opposing development means I am small minded or some kind of 'yocal' is ridiculous. People who live in Aberdour should see it as a privilege (worth paying for) and take responsibility to ensure future generations can enjoy it too.
