Scottish based Stephens Bakery hopes to open a drive-through bakery concept.

The plans have been lodged with the council, involving a store and 20 parking spaces at a site in Dunfermline.

If plans are approved, the site will open at the former petrol station, Black Douglas Services.

The bakery initially expected to hear back from the council this week, but that has not been the case.

The drive-through concept will be supported by Stephens’ factory in Rosyth, which will deliver products to the site by van. No baking will take place on-site.

A statement regarding the design plans, by Oliver & Robb Architects said: "An existing discarded petrol station is present on the proposed site to the south side of Baldridge Burn, most recently used as a car wash.

"The client’s brief for the project requested a purpose-built property that can accommodate a conventional bakery shop, with storage area and staff welfare facilities.

"Additionally, the proposal uniquely integrates a drive-through facility, creating the first of its type in Scotland.

"Moreover, the requirement for a minimum of 20 staff and customer car parking spaces was also stipulated by the client.”

The bakery has declined comment on the project until plans are approved.
