Kingdom Housing Association plans affordable housing development at Cuparmuir
Kingdom Housing Association moves forward with plans to develop derelict site.
Kingdom Housing Association is to move forward with proposals to develop the derelict former walled garden at Trynmuir, Cuparmuir, with 25 homes for affordable rent.
Having been granted planning permission in principle for the development by Fife Council back in 2010, followed by another approval in principle in 2014, an application is now about to be lodged by the association covering the detailed design of the houses.
Bill Banks, Chief Executive of Kingdom Housing Association, said:
“It is unfortunate that the association has been unable, for ownership and other reasons, to move more quickly to provide much needed affordable homes on the site. We now have that opportunity, in partnership with Campion Homes, to deliver what we believe will be a popular development for the many local families who are on our waiting list for attractive, energy-efficient homes.
“A variety of house types will be provided to meet the needs of a range of households, and we hope to be in a position to start work on site later this year.”
The association has been alerting local residents to the upcoming planning application, and will be presenting the proposals to Cupar Community Council at its meeting later this month.
