Full description

LOCATION
Gateside is a village within Fife, situated at the foot of the Lomond Hills, 12 miles south of Perth and 6 miles east of Kinross. The village is about 3 miles east of the M90 and is popular with commuters working in the larger centres in Fife
and also Edinburgh. Local services are available in Kinross and Cupar (12 miles), include primary and secondary schools, medical facilities and a range of retail outlets. Furthermore, there is a primary school in Gateside. The area has a rich
scenic and cultural heritage with various royal associations in the past including, of course, Mary Queen of Scots who was held prisoner in nearby Loch Leven Castle from where she escaped for a final, brief period of freedom and also Falkland Palace a short distance to the south east which is the former royal
palace of the Scottish Kings.

DESCRIPTION
The site is located to the south east of Gateside and extends to approximately 10.00 acres (4.20 hectares) in total, and is the site of a former shuttle and bobbin mill. The former mill buildings largely remain in place and are mainly of brick construction and include the main mill building and various out buildings and a terrace of stone built cottages, which have until recently been used for commercial purposes. The total footprint of the buildings on site extends to approximately 23,700 sq/ft (2,200 sq/m).

The site is located in attractive surroundings with mature woodland nearby and
is bounded to the south by a dismantled railway, which is now used as a public
footpath. Furthermore, the River Eden bisects the site generally west to east.

The site is access by a private road to the north providing direct access onto
the A91.

Part of the subjects are let to local businesses, however, notice can be served on
the tenants at relatively short notice.

PLANNING
The majority of the site is allocated in the St Andrews & East Fife Local Plan for employment use, with areas to the west designated as open space. Preapplication discussions with the planning authority have been carried out
and we have been advised that alternative development including residential may be acceptable in this location if it can be demonstrated that there is no demand for employment use development. There is also scope for a mixed use
development within the site.

Part of the site may be at risk of flooding due to the proximity of the River Eden and a flood risk assessment may be required prior to any future planning application.

There are no listed buildings within the boundary of the site.
