Keepmoat announces eight-year housebuilding programme in Glenrothes

KEEPMOAT Homes has announced plans to embark on an eight-year building programme to deliver 420 homes in Glenrothes, Fife, after completing on the purchase of Westwood Park.

The housebuilder revealed it will be bringing the vacant site at the north of Foxton Drive into ‘positive use’, with 10% of the new homes set to be allocated for affordable housing.

Keepmoat will deliver a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses. Along with access links for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles, the site will feature amenity space and children’s play areas.

Planning permission was granted by Fife Council in February 2021, and the council will work in partnership with Keepmoat Homes, Scottish Enterprise and LandTeam to deliver the site.

Derek Wilson, regional MD at Keepmoat Homes, said, “We’re thrilled to have completed the purchase of the site at Westwood Park and be able to contribute to the area with plans for a thriving new community. Westwood Park is designed to respond to the local surroundings while also holding a strong character and sense of place.

“Using modern construction methods, the new homes will be designed to support a range of prospective homeowners, from first-time buyers to those looking to up-or-downsize in the community and we’re confident that the first phase will help a lot of people achieve their dream of owning a new home.”

Work is due to start on site in Q1 2022 and is due to complete in 2030.
