Fife Council supports plans to redevelop Longannet site

Fife Council announced on Wednesday 18 December that a planning application from Scottish Enterprise to redevelop the Longannet site has been approved.

Longannet power station, which closed in 2016, was the last coal-fired power station in Scotland.

Fife Council Co-Leader, Cllr David Ross, said: “The Longannet site is nationally significant and critically important locally. The planning permission granted today marks a significant step forward in the journey towards creating new employment and economic opportunities in the Kincardine area and beyond.”

The application has been approved subject to a range of conditions.
