Plans for a privately-owned crematorium near St Andrews have resurfaced.
Development of the site at 100 Acre Wood, Brewsterwells, was mooted in 2013 but nothing so far has come to fruition.
However, Architects Scotland has submitted fresh proposals on behalf of BLF Properties Ltd, which will be considered by Fife Council.
The project would lead to the construction of a 350 sq m main building, a 120 sq m covered shelter, car park, coach park and a memorial garden.
Applicants BLF Properties will have to submit finalised plans for the external finish of the building, as well as a plan for the replanting of trees and hedgerows affected by construction.
There are also issues surrounding water drainage and road safety that must be addressed before the plans can get the go ahead.
Gordon Ball, chairman of Cameron Community Council, noted: “We gave it support basically because they said, and we agreed, there was a need for it. If they’re prepared to build it, yes it could be beneficial.”
However, he admitted there are still concerns over parking.
“It seems to be an issue everywhere these days,” he said. “If you look at Dundee or Kirkcaldy they have more provision.
“It’s a rural community, we all know each other, and when someone dies there can be over 200 to 300 people at a funeral.
“If people have to park out on the road, they’re going to have to get the police to help them with it.”
The proposed crematorium will have room for 71 vehicles.
