Lochgelly East (overview)

  1. Two pipelines cross the site wayleaves over both pipelines must be left free of development to allow for access – 7m wide along the NGL pipeline corridor and 10ft wide along the Natural Gas SGN pipeline corridor. Development within the pipeline consultation zone must comply with the Health and Safety Executive’s PADHI guidelines.
  2. The main accesses into the site are taken from The Avenue. The first principal access into site should be be positioned so that development can occur between B9149 and the NGL wayleave and a frontage can be formed at the prominent south western corner of the site. The location of further accesses will be determined through detailed layouts. To the south of the site, the buildings must front onto the Avenue particularly at the western end.
  3. There is the potential to establish visible secondary frontages within the site by utilising the wayleaves as vistas.
  4. The building that faces the roundabout at the south western corner of the site must be designed to reflect its prominent location. Development at this corner of the site must not prejudice a potential reconfiguration of the roundabout in the future.
  5. Both tree belts that traverse the site and the pockets of trees in the far south west corner of the site should be retained and repaired (although access points can be taken into the site along this boundary
  6. Linkages to the rest of Lochgelly are very important for the site, two pedestrian routes are identified to the west of the site, and the more northenly route is the more important of these two as it will provide a direct link to the town centre. This route should be provided as a minimum.
