Ambitious Plans For Fife’s Westfield Site

Hargreaves Land has committed to the next phase of the regeneration of its Westfield site, moving ahead with investment in major infrastructure works including roads, utilities and remediation work that will bring forward 45 acres of land for development.

The move follows the news that Brockwell Energy is set to build a new Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) plant at Westfield. The plant will utilise over 200,000 tonnes of waste previously destined for landfill into electricity and heat for high-energy business users with the remainder feeding into the grid network.

An estimated 400 jobs will be created during the ERF’s construction phase, which will follow on from the initial infrastructure work which started in February 2022. This will be followed by a further 40 full-time operational roles when the facility comes on stream in 2025.

Brockwell is also developing a 30 MW solar array on 80 acres of land at Westfield that will feed into a battery storage facility, while a deal has been agreed with an associated company on a neighbouring plot, who will recycle the ERF’s by-products into usable aggregates including ferrous and nonferrous metals.

Following these deals, Hargreaves Land appointed contractor I & H Brown to carry out the infrastructure works, which commenced in March.

There are currently several development plots ranging from 2 to 25 acres available at Westfield with the opportunities within the second phase of regeneration expected to deliver an additional 60 acres of plots in the future. Joint agents Neil McAllister of Ryden and Andrew McCracken of JLL have been appointed to market the site on behalf of Hargreaves Land.
