Work complete on £5.9m build of 40 homes in St Monans

WORK has been completed on the £5.9 million build of 40 affordable homes for social rent on the outskirts of St Monans in Fife.

The completed properties are owned and managed by Kingdom Housing Association and are the affordable housing provision of a larger private development being taken forward by Lochay Homes.

The project is located on the eastern outskirts of St Monans, a few miles west of Anstruther and 12 miles south of St Andrews. The development will provide a ‘diverse’ housing mix including larger family homes, cottage flats, and amenity and wheelchair bungalows.

Solar panels have been installed along with electrical car charging points which is inline with Kingdom’s commitment to sustainability and climate change.

Tom Barclay, Kingdom Group chief executive, said, “The location of this development in St Monans is stunning. St Monans is a picturesque village, popular with tourists, but there’s also a high demand for housing in the area from people who need homes so they can remain in the community and want to make their home there. This new development will bring a diverse housing mix with broad appeal. The homes will be safe, secure and energy efficient which is good for tenants and good for the environment.”

Drew Reid, Lochay Homes MD, added, “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Kingdom Housing Association on this development in St Monans. This is the third project we’ve worked on together and we’re proud to deliver such high-quality affordable housing in such a desirable location in the East Neuk.”
