I objected so got a letter today. I won't be addressing the Committee but I might go along anyway. It's not so much the closure of the abattoir - I can understand why that's happening given that it's right near the town centre. It's the lack of alternative provision that bothers me.

Obviously, hoteliers and retailers in St Andrews won't be keen on a Premier Inn and an M&S - and I can understand that too.

Planning application for hotel and store withdrawn - the letter does not mention the future of the abbatoir but  :relief: :&>

Just spoke to Karen at the abattoir. It closes on 12th July, last kill on the 6th, I think. Kind of scuppers the Fife Diet  >:(

This will leave the way clear for a resubmission of the planning application with the planners more likely to approve PP on a "soon to be derelict" site.

I understand that there are moves to build a new abattoir at Forfar (which would be fab for us, being just 12 miles away) but even if it goes ahead, it's not going to be open for some time.

Another blow for local food and small producers.

And watch out cos if it's anything like the redevelopment of inveruries abbatoirs , they will stop taking private kills and stop doing pigs full stop :-(((((( leaves us with a choice of one abbatoir miles away :-((
