This site aims to inform and engage with all stakeholders and other interested groups in developing a new and exciting sustainable community to the West of King’s Road and to the South of Camdean, on land originally zoned nearly one hundred years ago as part of Raymond Unwin's vision of Rosyth Garden City.
Update on Planning Process
We are delighted to confirm that our proposals for Hilton received Fife Council’s approval at their South West Area Committee planning meeting on 14th November 2012.
We are now working on detailed plans for the first phase and look forward to carrying out further consultation with all stakeholders in early course.
Welcome from Kapital Foundation Chairman, Keith Punler
Thank you for taking the time to visit us. Hilton intends to be a conservation village for tomorrow, a community that residents and adjoining neighbourhoods alike take pride in, developed with our responsibility to future generations uppermost in our minds.
Much is documented about the demand for new housing, even in these tougher economic times, yet very little success has been achieved in creating modern desirable communities in which to live. Too many times in the recent past, developers have constructed on great swathes of Greenfield land, creating many houses, but failing to embrace the other requirements needed to create sustainable communities within which people want to live.
We believe that there is another way: by creating a safe and healthy local environment, with well designed public and green space, by having a well-integrated mix of decent homes of different types and tenure to support a range of household sizes, ages and incomes, with good public transport and other transport infrastructure, both within the community and by linking it to urban, rural and regional centres and to achieve all of this with effective engagement and participation by local people, groups and businesses, especially in the planning, design and long term stewardship of their community.
We aim to create this "sense of place" with your help and support.
A public presentation of our plans will be made in Rosyth and the response and views expressed by local residents and other stakeholders will be posted on this website. You can click here to send your comments.
With our chosen site being located on part of the original site designated as Scotland’s first Garden City, for me the really exciting challenge that we are setting ourselves in creating this vision for 21st Century living, is in how to harness the original concept which initially created Rosyth and adapt it for this 21st Century.
I hope you join me in helping to make this vision a reality.
Hilton Development Plan
The Hilton Development Plan will include:
- new homes for mixed affordability, designed to reflect the Garden City Movement
- employment opportunities
- retirement/sheltered housing
- nursing home
- local retail centre
- community facilities
- recreational facilities
- options for upgrade or replacement of Camdean Primary School in a proposed partnership with Fife Council
All buildings will be designed to the highest energy efficiency and environmental standards, with raw materials from the most sustainable sources.
We aim to eliminate construction waste going to landfill and intend to construct the homes in accordance with the Government’s "zero carbon" ambitions by using the latest innovations in sustainable products and renewable technologies, meeting levels 4, 5 and 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
