Major occupiers who have chosen to locate in Dunfermline include BSkyB, Intelligent Finance, HBoS, Defence Estates, Babcock and Oceaneering.
The subjects comprise a large area of commercial land which has benefited from considerable expenditure on infrastructure works with the road access. A number of sites have been developed to date including developments by Scot Sheridan/Buccleuch Estates and Young & Company Solicitors.
The site lies within the Dunfermline Eastern Expansion area (DEX) which has been masterplanned and now progressing into its latter stages of implementation. The predominant surrounding land use is residential with community facilities and structural landscaping. The land for sale is zoned in the Dunfermline and the Coast Local Plan 1997 for employment uses (Class 4 only).
A replacement Dunfermline and West Fife Local Plan is currently being led by Fife Council. This process may lead to a change in policies and proposals concerning this site.
