We’ve now submitted our plans to Fife Council to go to committee. Any properties directly adjacent to us should have already received notification, but we want to share them with everyone in Crail as we’re quite excited by what our architects – Muir Walker Pride in St Andrews – have been working on.
We were lucky to also have guidance from Dennis Gowan from the community council, and from Matthew Price, our local Conversation Officer, who helped us understand some of the, occasionally counter-intuitive, aspects of the conservation plan.
We have also submitted for building warrant to proceed with the renovations. We hope to have both planning and warrant granted by mid-March so we can start the work in April.

Our design statement goes into why we want to make the changes:
Ground floor and elevations
The ground floor plan shows how we want to increase the size of the kitchen and provide disabled access and a proper accessible toilet, whilst keeping a good fire escape route for the guest rooms upstairs:
(The window colours don’t come out too well – on some screens it looks almost blue/purple. They won’t be!)
First and Second floors
Here we show how we want to combine some rooms on the first floor and open out the top floor to provide 3 generously sized double bedrooms and a suite.
If you’d like more info please feel free to email us with your phone number and we’d be happy to explain what we’re up to and why we’ve made the decisions we have.
