About Us

Ceres and District Environment and Amenity Protection Group addresses issues arising from planning applications that adversely effect the environment and amenity of the area. We address these issues on relevant planning grounds and use Scottish national policy and the Fife development plan as our guide.

Chemoprevention and colon cancer: an interview with Dr.

As our data with these organic triterpenes mature, we anticipate that these collective observations will set the stage for human being trials in which cancers chemoprevention by triterpenoids can be achieved in patients who are in a considerably higher risk. Are there any plans to pursue human being trials in malignancy chemoprevention with triterpenoids? The artificial triterpenoids, including CDDO-Me and a related analog are currently being explored in medical development in an array of indications by our collaborator Reata Pharmaceuticals. In addition to this scheduled program, we also have an active effort focused on the derivatization and isolation of unique, organic triterpenoids. Continue reading

Pitscottie Wind Turbine

Application Reference: 13/00698/FULL
Proposal: Erection of wind turbine (49.5m) with associated meter house, hardstanding area and formation of access track
Address: Land To West Of Easter Pitscottie Farm Cupar Road Pitscottie Fife.

In response to concerns by householders close to the site we objected to this proposal as did Kemback, Blebo and Pittscottie Community Council and Ceres and District Community Council.

The application lodged on 15th March 2013 is for a wholly inappropriate site overlooking the village of Pitscottie and a big number of local residents and visitors sent in objections.

The application came before the planning committee on 4th June 2014 with a recommendation for refusal and it was refused by notice dated the 5th June 2014.

To his great credit, Frank Niven, the applicant did not appeal the decision and peace and goodwill returned to the village of Pitscottie and round about

Muirhead Farm

Application Reference: 14/03510/FULL Date 20.10.14
Proposal: Erection of 500 kW wind turbine (79m to blade tip)
Address: Muirhead Farm Fife

In response to concerns by householders close to the site we objected to this proposal as did Ceres and District Community Council. The application came before the planning committee on 8th April 2015 with a recommendation for approval. A motion for refusal by Councillor Kennedy was supported by a majority of the committee and it was refused by notice dated the 14th May 2015.

The Applicant appealed the decision and the reporter appointed by the Scottish Government allowed the appeal and granted planning consent on 2nd October 2015.

It remains to be seen, given the changes to the Feed in Tariff subsidy regime, if the applicant Tencreek Renewables can put together a funding package and develop the site. They have no record of ever having developed a wind turbine site before… there liabilities exceed their assets…their share capital is £100.00…. they have no bankable information of wind speeds as they did not put up a met mast and how they found their way from Ottery St Mary in Devon to Muirhed farm is a mystery only the farmer can solve.

15/02025/SCR | Screening request for erection of one wind turbine (45m to blade tip) Clatto Farm Cupar Fife KY15 7TG

In June 2015 the applicant asked for an opinion from Fife Council if an application for another 45 metre wind turbine to join the one erected in early 2015 would require an Environmental Impact Assessment and the council advised them that this would not be required.

Claremont Wind Farm

Live Planning Application

Application Reference
: 15/02520/FULL
Proposal : Erection of 3 wind turbines (maximum height 44.3 metres to blade tip) with associated equipment, crane hardstanding, access road and substation
Address : Land To The South West Of Claremont Ladeddie Pitscottie

This is a live planning application. Alan Myles the farmer at Claremont has applied for consent to develop a site with three unusual turbines being developed by an American company Ogin with supporting documentation by Temporis.

In response to concerns by householders close to the site at Baldinnie and Ladeddie we objected to the proposal as have Cameron and Ceres and District Community Councils. All documents including 60 or so objections can be seen by clicking on the link below

The Ministry of Defence haveobjected because of the impact on the air traffic control and surveillance radars at Leuchars and their objection can be seen on the following link

Baldinnie Solar Farm

Application Reference : 15/03680/SCR
Proposal : Screening opinion for proposed ground mounted 3.5MW solar photovoltaic farm
Address : Land To The East Of Percy Baldinnie Farmhouse Baldinnie Pitscottie Fife KY15 5LD

A very recently formed company Fraone Limited with two German shareholders is planning to develop a 3.5MW solar photovoltaic farm covering the 17 acre field behind the property at Percy Baldinnie with ground mounted solar panels and export the electricity to the national grid. As the owner of the field is not shown as the applicant he would receive a rent from the developer if the application were to succeed.

This is not a full planning application but requires an opinion from Fife Council if any future application will require to be accompanied by an Environmental Impact Assessment.

However it does give advance notice to members of the community that a full planning application is in the offing and to decide whether or not you would like to object to a future application. There is a 21day period in which to make a representation from when an application is advertised so this added time is useful.
