Former coal mine development site is on the market



One of Scotland’s largest industrial redevelopment projects came a step closer today after plots on a former 1,000-acre coal mine in Fife were put on the market.

Coal production at Westfield near Kinglassie ended in 1998 and owner Hargreaves Land , which bought the site in 2013, has secured planning permission in principle for a site-wide masterplan. Two plots are already under offer, with JLL and Ryden now appointed to market the scheme.

Phil Rayson, senior planning and development manager at Hargreaves Land, said: “With the proper investment, the site location, scale and unique features can be exploited to create a visionary and innovative regeneration and development project.”

Planning permission has already been granted for a power station that will burn waste to generate electricity, heat and steam for the site. Hargreaves Land, which is based in Durham and has offices in Edinburgh and Lanark, is behind several Scottish projects, including the Blindwells housing development in East Lothian, and restoration schemes at former coal mines near Alloa, Dunfermline and Lanark.
