Fire at former Viewforth High School, Kirkcaldy

01.10.20

We are concerned to learn of a significant fire, which we believe has destroyed the former Viewforth High School building in Kirkcaldy.  We are consulting with Fife Council, who currently own and insure the building, to determine the most viable future for the former school building after such extensive damage.

While the planning application process for this development has been delayed due to COVID-19, we remain committed to the redevelopment of the overall site.  Following our ongoing discussion with the planning department at Fife Council, we hope that our application can be reviewed at Planning Committee at the end of September, in order to determine the principle of redevelopment, such that local residents can see a positive outcome across the former school site.
