Minister Opens Kincardine Housing Development

 On Thursday, Scottish Government Housing Minister, Margaret Burgess, officially opened Kingdom Housing Association’s £9 million housing development in Kincardine.

The 65 new affordable houses replace two of the three tower blocks demolished in 2010.  This is the first phase of a larger regeneration plan which will conclude with the demolition of the last remaining tower block, probably next year.

Attending the opening, local MSP and former West Fife Councillor Bill Walker said: “These are very attractive new homes installed with solar thermal panels. They provide a high standard of energy efficiency, thus reducing heating costs for residents.

“Dunfermline firm Oliver and Robb Architects designed the houses, and Campion built them in partnership with Fife Council and the Scottish Government.  Future occupiers and the Kincardine Tenants and Residents Association, led by Mr Michael Paterson, provided local input to the project.

“I think this is a great example of working in partnership, which I hope will continue till completion of this site and elsewhere in Fife.”
