A Fife village could be completely transformed if plans to build hundreds of new homes are given the go-ahead.

Persimmon Homes has unveiled a masterplan for 357 residential units with associated engineering, landscape and infrastructure works on land at Seggie Farm to the south-west of Guardbridge.

A formal planning application has now been lodged with Fife Council in relation to the site to the north of the A91 Cupar Road.

Approval of the development would increase the population of the historic Fife village by about 50%.

Design and access statements have highlighted a number of site constraints that would have to be overcome, such as Seggie House and Walled Garden and Seggie Farm Cottages to the west of the site.

As part of the blueprint, the developers want to create a new primary road connecting Cupar Road with Main Street in the form of a tree-lined avenue.
