Kingdom Housing Association has started work on the £3.1m development that will see a mixture of common access apartments and cottage flats built on Station Road, close to Leven town centre.

The mid market rent homes will be owned by Kingdom Housing Association but let and managed by Kingdom Initiatives after completion.

With funding of £1.2m provided by the Scottish Government, the new highly-efficient properties have been designed to achieve Scottish Government Greener Standards, Housing for Varying Needs standards and Secured By Design Accreditation.
