Please note that, as of May 3rd I will no longer be a sitting Councillor as I am retiring to concentrate on local projects. I will be continuing to keep a very careful eye on planning applications.
It has certainly been a long haul. Because the application for a Morrisons Supermarket at Invertiel was contrary to the Mid Fife Local Plan, the Planners recommendation was for refusal and the Kirkcaldy Area Committee recommended approval the application went through a hearing at which well over a hundred residents made impassioned appeals for approval, and then to Planning Committee.

It has been a wonderful exercise in democracy and all, supporters and objectors, have made a great contribution to the process. There is still much to do to improve Invertiel.
