Ceri Williams started this petition to Fife Council

Cupar is a lovely former County Town in Fife, Scotland. It is just large enough for the facilities it has, including good schools, green parks, a small cottage hospital and a pleasant setting in the valley of the River Eden, which is now home to a family of otters!

Persimmon Homes- easily one of the worst builders in the UK has filed a planning application to build a massive development on the north side of the town. Despite the local community being concerned at the damage this will cause, Fife Council planners are ignoring all representations and encouraging this dreadful builder to continue with a plan that will increase the size of Cupar by a third- effectively a new town. The plan has been dubbed "Cupar North".

The damage to our beautiful town will be caused by-

All the building being on Grade A agricultural land- Scotland only has 6% of such land.

There is little provision for any local jobs, so all the residents of Cupar North will be commuters, increasing pollution.

Cupar is prone to flooding and this development will undoubtedly add to the risk.

Traffic in the centre of the town will increase by over 300 journeys a day, making a shopping trip very unpleasant.

Please help us!
