‘Ambitious’ mixed-use development proposed for St Andrews site

SCOTSMAN Developments has unveiled proposals for a new mixed-use development at the former Madras College campus on Kilrymont Road in St Andrews.

The college’s former site was marketed for sale by Fife Council for development purposes. Proposals from Scotsman Developments include new housing (including 30% affordable homes) and the retention and re-use of existing listed school buildings for uses comprising residential, retail and leisure.

As part of Fife Council’s Building Fife’s Future programme, a new £55 million Madras College building has been completed on a site at Langlands.

In addition to the Kilrymont proposals, the college’s South Street site was acquired by the University of St Andrews as part of the deal for the new school.

A Proposal of Application Notice has been submitted to Fife Council and two online community consultation events have been scheduled.

David Scanlon from Scotsman Developments Ltd said, “This exciting and ambitious scheme will serve to regenerate the current redundant site, including retaining and re-using the existing listed school buildings, which I know will be greatly welcomed by the local community. Development will deliver much-needed housing, including affordable homes, local retail and leisure uses.

“We’re looking forward to consulting widely with the local community and key stakeholders over the coming months, which will include two digital consultation events, and are keen to hear their views in shaping proposals for this significant site.”
