Councillor Judy Hamilton, the Council’s executive spokesman for Housing & Building Services recently visited the site to see what progress was being made.

She said: “This is going to be a lovely housing development when it’s completed. It’s another fine example of the housing developments that the Council is building in-house.

Cllr Hamilton added: “This development contributes towards our wider commitment of delivering 2,700 new affordable homes by May 2017.

“We are pleased with our progress on this and our pledge to provide warmer, drier, healthier homes that will help to address fuel poverty and improve living standards for residents.”

The project is part of the Council’s wider Affordable Housing Programme to increase the number of affordable homes avaialble for rent across Fife.
