Residents are being invited to have their say on plans for a huge expansion of Cupar.

Persimmon Homes North Scotland will host a virtual event to get locals' feedback on its updated masterplan for the north of the town, before its final submission to Fife Council.

It takes place on June 16 between 1pm and 7pm by accessing this link and clicking 'live chat'.

The updated masterplan encompasses 1,480 homes - including 20% affordable housing - a new primary school, a green network and associated open space for recreation, sports pitches, and a relief road. 

The plans also include provision for bulky goods retail, business, hotel, restaurant and takeaway outlets, a petrol station and leisure use.

James McKay, managing director for Persimmon Homes North Scotland, said: "Our multi-million-pound investment in the Cupar north expansion is testament to our commitment to deliver high-quality new homes that meet the needs of the housing market. 

"As well as the new homes, commercial aspect and community facilities, the proposals will provide a boost for the local economy and create long-term employment opportunities.

"A comprehensive review of the responses to the current planning application has been undertaken prompting a range of improvements and we encourage the local community to engage with us during this latest consultation. 

"Providing feedback on the updated masterplan proposals will help shape the final designs before submission to Fife Council."

The revised masterplan will be available for public comments online from June 10.
