Only solution to 20 year blight


By Dunfermline.info - Sat, 29th Mar 2003

McDonald Regenesis argue that their proposals are the only solution being offered to the 20-year-old blight of the former Co-op site.
Mr McDonald stressed that under the Local Plan, the town-centre area had been set aside as prime shopping.

"It is the area that everyone has wanted to see developed since all thi sstarted nearly 20 years ago when the local Co-op abortively developed that building in Randolph Street. I think it is important to bear in mind, too, that for 20 years, it has not been developed because no-one has come up with a sensible, economically viable solution."
A food store and shop units are accessed via the Queen Anne street link with the Kingsgate.

"It has been very difficult for us to marry the various considerations, both commercial and environmental, and to arrive at the solution which is now manifested in our current planning application, but it is based on what we see the demand coming from in the retail market".
The Old-Coop building, plans have now been proposed for a �50m regeneration scheme

The Regenesis scheme has been specifically designed to suit the requirements of modern retailers who are tending towards larger units than those found in the traditional market-town high streets.

"We deal with retail tenants on a day-to-day basis", he said. "We know who is in the market and where they want to be. These issues are important when you look at what we are trying to do against any other scheme, be it on the edge of the town sentre, Halbeath or wherever."
