Councillors on Fife Council’s North-East Fife planning committee have unanimously approved the University’s planning application for the development of a purpose-built home for professional services at Eden Campus.
The decision will allow construction work to begin this summer with a view to beginning to move teams to Eden Campus in phases from the end of 2019.
Quaestor Derek Watson said:
“This is great news. We are delighted that councillors have given the green light for our plans for Eden Campus.
“This is a major strategic move for the University which will provide an exceptional working environment for our staff, breathe new life in the local economy of Guardbridge and have a beneficial impact on the town of St Andrews freeing up space for research and teaching.”
