Kingdom Housing Association has completed the work on 40 new affordable homes for social rent on the outskirts of St Monans, a coastal village in North East 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 £5.9m development, with funding of £3.2m provided by the Scottish Government, will now provide a diverse housing mix including larger family homes, cottage flats and amenity and wheelchair bungalows and is due to complete in Summer 2023.
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 Managing Director 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.“
In addition to the 40 new homes being provided, education initiatives, employment and training opportunities have been included as part of the Community Benefits for the project.
