Open day success at Fife regeneration project
Kingdom tenants and their families attend Fraser Avenue open day.
Kingdom Housing Association welcomed tenants and their families to its Fraser Avenue open day to see first-hand the progress being made with the Inverkeithing regeneration project.
The regeneration project is being progressed by Kingdom Housing Association in partnership with Fife Council, where unpopular flats that were owned by the council are being demolished and the land redeveloped by Kingdom to provide new high quality affordable homes.
The first phase of new housing started on site in March 2017 to provide 53 new homes for social rent. Completion of the new homes will be phased with the first tenants expected to move in at the end of October 2018.
The new homes have been designed to meet local housing needs and have been built to high energy efficiency standards to help keep fuel bills low for the tenants. The total cost of the project is £7.9 million and grant assistance of £4.2m was provided from the Scottish Government.
Ashleigh Letham, who will be moving into one of the new homes, said:
“It’s been great to watch the regeneration progress and moving into one of the new homes will be amazing. I can’t wait.”
Julie Watson, Development Manager at Kingdom Housing Association, said:
“We’re really pleased to see so many tenants come along to our open day and to hear how excited they are about moving into their new homes.
“The open day has been a great opportunity to allow tenants to meet staff and ask questions about their move.”
