Councillor Judy Hamilton, convener of community and housing services said: “I’m delighted that most of the houses are now complete, and that tenants are moving into their new homes.

"We very much need this new housing in the Glenrothes area. The mix of house types will provide safe and warm homes for all tenants and families – and provide accessible housing for disabled tenants."

Patrycja Rutkowska, a new tenant, said: " Our new home makes such a difference to my family, especially because I have a very small baby.

"I love the house. It makes me so happy and it has changed our lives.”
