Robertson completes build of Fife Council home development

Councillor Judy Hamilton

FIFE Council’s affordable housing programme has hit another milestone, with tenants moving into a new development at Keir Hardie Wynd in Methil.

Robertson Partnership Homes East completed the 25-home build, which features two, three and four-bedroom houses, bungalows and single bedroom flats. Built on the site of the council’s building services depot, the new development has met all the modern standards for energy-efficiency and passes Police Scotland’s ‘safe-by-design’ mark.

Councillor Judy Hamilton, convener of community and housing services, said, “I’m delighted that all of the houses, gardens and landscaped areas are now complete here at Keir Hardie Wynd and that tenants are enjoying their new homes.

“The development is now complete, after construction was halted for a time earlier in the year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This new housing is very much needed in the Levenmouth Area. The range of house types will provide homes that are safe and warm for all our tenants and provide accessible housing for tenants with disabilities.

“This development makes huge strides towards our commitment to work in partnership and deliver 3500 new affordable homes by 2022. Of this number, 1500 will be new council houses. Working together with the Fife Housing Association Alliance, and developers, we are proud to be building fit for purpose modern houses that will benefit tenants for many years to come.”
