Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and the subsequent government restrictions, we as an association have and continue to take the necessary steps and precautions to minimise the risk to our customers, staff, residents and partners. Consequently, demolition works and site clearance have been brought to an immediate halt, delaying the construction of Phase 2. We are optimistic that the remaining demolition and clearance works will be completed in the near future as the lockdown restrictions ease, allowing Campion Homes to progress with the regeneration.

Building Work Begins
We are pleased to confirm that building work on the first 53 new homes at Fraser Avenue started on Monday 8 May 2017. Completion is expected in December 2018 however we will work closely with the main contractor, Campion Homes, to agree a phased handover. This will allow some of the new homes to be ready for allocation from summer 2018 onwards.
To ensure public health and safety the site will be closed off to the public while building works are underway. This temporary closure will mean that the bus routes currently running through Fraser Avenue will be diverted via Spittalfield. Please note that Fraser Avenue cannot be closed off until we carry out some pre-diversion works which will include opening up the road link between Spittalfield and Spencerfield and providing a new access road from Hillend onto Gray Place/ Spittalfield. We expect the pre-diversion works to take approximately 3 weeks to complete and on completion diversion signs will be in place to assist residents and drivers.
Kingdom Housing Association and Campion Homes are planning to hold a Construction Academy in June 2017. Successful candidates will be offered 2 weeks accredited construction training, such as CSCS, Asbestos Awareness and Manual Handling, followed by a 2-4 week work placement with Campion Homes on one of their Fife based sites. If you would like to take part or find out further information please click here or contact Kingdom’s Fife Works team on 01592 862304.
