More must be done to engage the public with big planning applications in their communities, a Glenrothes councillor has said.
Ross Vettraino, Glenrothes Central and Thornton representative, has said he has been concerned by a lack of local feedback after councillors approved the town’s draft local area plan, the document that earmarks land for development in the coming years.
He cited the example of Thornton, where almost 1,000 homes could be constructed.
However, despite the scale of the proposals, not one comment was received from either residents or the community council, something that has stunned Mr Vettraino.
“I don’t think the community understands what is being proposed here,” he said. “They should not wait until the bulldozers move in.”
