Scarborough Muir Group gets Green Light for Fife Scheme

Posted on 29 July, 2015 by Chris Grigorovsky

Scarborough Muir Group Limited (SMG), a joint venture between Scarborough Group International and Muir Group, has announced today that it has received outline planning consent from Fife Council for its four acre commercial development site in Dalgety Bay.


The 16,850 sq ft development will comprise an Aldi store, a drive-thru coffee restaurant, a family pub restaurant, as well as a 10,000 sq ft commercial unit, suitable for light industrial or office use. The green light, which follows extensive consultations, is expected to  spark the wider regeneration of the industrial estate.

SMG and Aldi are now ready to submit detailed planning applications to Fife Council for the foodstore and family pub restaurant, while Ryden’s Edinburgh office has been appointed to secure occupiers for the drive-thru coffee restaurant and commercial unit.

Director of Scarborough Muir Group, William McAlister says he is delighted to receive the support from Fife Council saying it “will make a significant contribution to Fife, providing much needed facilities and bringing local jobs to the area.”

He continues: “Aldi’s decision to open a foodstore on the site is testament to the prominent location of the scheme and we are confident that we will secure other high-quality occupiers for the drive-thru coffee restaurant and commercial unit.”

Robert Stoddart, Property Director for Aldi Stores, added: “Our brand is very popular with Fife shoppers and we received lots of support from the Dalgety Bay community during the consultation process.”

Construction is expected to begin before summer 2016, with completion due before Christmas trading of 2016.
