Controversial plans for an electricity plant in Fife are set to be discussed again tomorrow.

Councillors on the planning review committee will consider an appeal over the proposals for Hillend.

The plans for the 19.9MW plant, near Growforth Garden Centre, were turned down by the council earlier this year.

Locals say they have concerns about the impact on air quality and the landscape.

But the company behind the proposals says it would provide vital support to the national grid, when existing power sources can't cope with demand.

Among those objecting to it is Dalgety Bay and Hillend Community Council.
