Work has started on 45 affordable new homes for social rent in Kinglassie.

The project, by Kingdom Group, is part of a wider private development to the south of Hill View and brings much-needed high quality housing to the area.

The homes, which will be managed by Kingdom Housing Association and allocated from the Fife Housing Register, will cater for the needs of the local community by incorporating a range of housing designs including bungalows and cottage flats, larger family homes and homes suitable for older people or those with particular housing needs.

"We know the positive impact high-quality affordable housing has on people’s lives and we work closely with our partners to provide energy efficient, safe and secure homes in our local communities.

"The development in Kinglassie is located in an established residential area and will provide much-needed additional affordable housing to the village. Recognising the ongoing cost of living crisis, the new homes will be highly energy-efficient which helps to keep fuel bills down and we will provide employment and training opportunities in the local community as part of our community benefits commitment.

"The work we do at the Kingdom Group is about so much more than bricks and mortar and I’m proud that our wraparound services help our customers and their families thrive, supporting our mission to provide more than a home.”

The total cost of the project is £8.99 million, including £4.9 million provided by the Scottish Government. It is scheduled to be complete in November 2025.
