Tricia Hill, Kingdom Housing Association’s development director, said “The developments will bring much-needed affordable homes to the East Neuk of Fife and the diverse housing mix will have broad appeal.”

Susan Jackson, joint managing director at Campion Homes, said: “With Fife Council recently declaring a housing emergency, it’s more important than ever that we work with our partners to deliver affordable housing. The developments now underway in Pittenweem and Leuchars will help but we know there is more to do. We look forward to seeing these sites progress.”

Campion Homes has reported a positive start to 2023/24 with a return to profit in the first half of the financial year. The company is also achieving healthy sales on its two private housing developments in Glenrothes and Crieff, with an additional site planned for later this year in Meigle, Perthshire.
