Falkland residents have been ignored by a house builder which wants to construct more than 100 new homes in the village, they have claimed.
Revised proposals for the former St John’s works site, the local community council said, failed to take into account many of the issues raised.
The development by Springfield Homes at Well Brae would be the biggest change in the burgh in more than a century and increase its population by up to 20%.
People are worried about the impact of additional traffic on the historic village’s narrow streets and pressure on the primary school and other local services.
Springfield Homes, which is yet to submit its planning application, staged a second public consultation event to show amended proposals.
Rod Crawford, chairman of Falkland Community Council, said: “It is very disappointing that Springfield has ignored so many of the points raised in the community council’s response to their consultation.
“We will be seeking support from the highest level of Fife Council to ensure that planning rules are rigorously followed.”
The Falkland Factory Site campaign group said the event did nothing to change its views.
A spokesperson said: “Residents were insulted to find that only one corner of the proposed development was illustrated.
“They also discovered that comments from residents would not be received.
“Four Springfield staff attending were in the difficult position of being unable to answer basic questions about the lack of a playpark or the disappearance of required employment land.
“The developers were clear that multiple mature trees fringing the site would be felled, even though these are part of the Fife green core path.”
North East Fife SNP MP Stephen Gethins urged the developer to take the views of the community on board.
He said: “Any development be sensitive to the needs of this historic village and I hope that when the application is submitted Springfield Homes will have taken the views of the community on board.”
A Springfield Homes spokesman said: “We are working on a design for this development in Falkland which is informed by Scottish Government guidance and meets legislation, regulation and local need.
“It will deliver an attractive development which will include highly energy efficient homes and could offer opportunities for business and improved recreational spaces.”
