Lomond Homes, the housing developer which has a current outstanding debt to the Lochgelly community for £300,000 has resubmitted a planning application for the Avenues.

The application has been submitted by their agent Lomond Land Ltd on behalf of Lomond the Avenues Ltd, both of which share the same registered address as Lomond Homes Ltd.

Although all three companies are the same, legally they have to be treated as separate entities, hence the reason why Lomond Homes may be able to avoid paying their Section 75 Agreement through closure of Lomond Homes Ltd.

Lomond Homes Ltd currently have a potential debt of £669,400, if all developments go ahead with no amendments which is due under various Section 75 Agreements throughout Fife, as well as agreed upon construction works that are outstanding.

There is strong evidence from various sources that Lomond Homes is closing, and the closure will mean that the owners and directors of Lomond Homes will not have to pay for any previously agreed upon Section 75 payments.

Lomond Land Ltd and Lomond the Avenues Ltd are hoping to build another housing development on the fields adjacent to the Avenue and next to their currently incomplete development at New Farm Vales.

The applications was received on the 6th December 2012, with consultation starting on the 14th December and ending on the 28th December 2012 with a deadline for determination for the 6th February 2013.

Since the application is being lodged by a separate legal entity of Lomond Homes, Fife Council planners will not be able to reject the plans based on past & present performances and non-payment of Section 75 Agreements by Lomond Homes. Instead the application will have to be decided solely on the merits of the application and not on the ethical conduct of the business owners and directors.

    Hope Lomond is awarded the planning application. It will provide work for local people such as electricians, builders, plasterers etc. The area where the proposed homes may be situated just now is an eye sore.

      The area is an eyesore because Lomond Homes was dumping excavated dirt from the other site to change the lay of the land so there was enough depth for them to build upon. Lomond is a dodgy company.

    I’m split. It would be good for local jobs but they don’t finish what they’ve started. I’m still waiting for my street to be resurfaced.
