THERE are plans to turn a care home in Lochgelly into a five-bedroom house.

Mr and Mrs Stuart Kinnear have submitted a change of use application to Fife Council for the premises at 33 Plantation Street.

It had been a care home for people with autism until permission was granted in May 2013 to turn it into a four-bedroom house.

However, it was used as a care home again from December 2014 with Amisfield Care Ltd gaining retrospective planning permission for the change in December 2017.

Now Mr and Mrs Kinnear, who are both directors of the firm, are hoping the premises can once more be turned into a dwelling.
