Work begins on 76 affordable homes in Kirkcaldy

KINGDOM Housing Association has revealed work is underway at a £10 million development to build 76 new affordable homes at Kingdom Park in Kirkcaldy.

The social rent properties at the site will be owned and managed by Kingdom Housing Association, with the the mid-market rent properties looked after by Kingdom Initiatives.

The homes are the affordable housing element of the larger private development being taken forward by housebuilder Persimmon.

The project, which has benefited from £5.4m of funding from the Scottish Government, will comprise a mix of larger family homes, apartments and cottage flats and is due to complete in February 2023.

Julie Watson, interim head of capital investment at Kingdom, said, “Working in partnership with Persimmon Homes, Kingdom will be able to provide affordable new homes that are not only safe and secure, but are highly energy efficient. That’s good for our tenants in terms of reduced energy costs, but also good for the environment.

“Recognising sustainability and the impact housing has on climate change is one of Kingdom’s strategic objectives. The development at Kingdom Park is an example of how combining technologies such as photovoltaic panels with modern construction materials allows us to play our part in tackling climate change.”
