Kincardine Housing Development

I recently attended the official opening of the new Kincardine housing development, which I very much welcome. Kingdom Housing Association has built 65 affordable houses to replace two of the tower blocks demolished in 2010. This is the first phase of a regeneration that will conclude with the demolition of the remaining tower block, probably next year.

These modern, well-built houses are fitted with solar thermal panels, making them energy efficient and thus cheaper to heat. Dunfermline firm Oliver and Robb Architects designed them, while another local firm, Campion, built them in partnership with Fife Council and the Scottish Government.

My Parliamentary colleague Margaret Burgess attended the opening in one of her first engagements as new Housing Minister. I hope this will be the first of many official visits by Margaret during the regeneration of West Fife.
