Plans for new homes on the outskirts of Dunfermline are set to go before councillors.
Developer Omnivale Limited wants to build 140 homes on land to the north of Wellwood Primary School.
It has applied for permission in principle - meaning detailed plans have still to be developed.
But planning officials are encouraging councillors to turn the plans down.
They say it doesn't fit in with the local development plan, and claim the applicant wouldn't do enough to mitigate the impact on local roads.
The plans will be considered at a meeting on Wednesday.
