A takeaway café near Kelty has apparently been operating for months despite not having planning permission.

John Andison, of Clentry Holdings, which is west of the village, has now submitted an application to Fife Council to address the oversight. 

He said that work on his Lite Bites cafe was completed in April and added: "We were unaware that we would require a change of use of the land."

The site is classed as agricultural land and a planning enforcement officer from the council explained that Mr Andison would need consent to change the use of the land before the cafe could be considered acceptable.

The application was registered at the end of last month and a decision is still to be made.  

In it Mr Andison explained: “The planning enforcement officer, Mark Dall, visited the site and notified us that we were compliant on everything other than change of use of the site to allow the development to trade.”
