Inverbervie houses backed by councillors

COUNCILLORS unanimously approved the development of thirty houses in Inverbervie at the Kincardine and Mearns Area Comittee meeting this week.

The development will see thirty houses being developed on land South of King David Drive in Inverbervie.

This will be phase two of a project which has been developed by Inverbervie based company, Fotheringham Property.

Phase one of the Castleview Estate in Inverbervie has been completed by the company and the homes on the land is already full. Phase two will be built to the North-West of phase one and will have a mixture of semidetached and detached houses.

Along with the thirty homes an access road will be built.

Councillor for the area George Carr described the houses as being in a “Desirable area.” He said: “It connects very well with the rest of the Royal Burgh and ties in very well with existing developments.” Councillor Carr also praised the “ambiance” of phase one of the development and expressed his hope that this would continue into phase two.

Councillor Jean Dick echoed his support.

She said: “If the standard of phase one is anything to go by then I wholeheartedly support this.” She also explained how whilst phase one of the project received lots of letters of objection, phase two had received none.

She explained how this highlighted the good job that Fotheringham property had done on phase one of the development.

Within the thirty homes there will be five homes set aside as affordable housing.

It was emphasised to the Councillors that the affordable houses will not look out of place on the development.

It was explained that phase one of the development also contained affordable housing and that they could not be identified from the other houses within the finished development.

The proposal for development of the thirty homes, having been approved by Councillors, will now be referred to the Infastructure Services Committee (ISC).
