Twenty-seven high-quality new homes will help local people in housing need, following the completion of a project involving Persimmon North Scotland and Kingdom Housing Association.

The mixture of properties form part of Persimmon North Scotland’s Carnegie Fauld development and have now been transferred to Kingdom Housing Association.

Persimmon North Scotland’s managing director, James MacKay, and Kingdom Housing Association’s director of housing, Matthew Busher, were joined on site by local MSP and Scottish Government cabinet secretary for social justice Shirley-Anne Somerville to mark the completion of the project.

The Carnegie Fauld development consists of over 100 new energy-efficient homes in total and Ms. Somerville was given a tour of the site and heard how the new homes are already benefiting local families.

Shirley-Anne Somerville, MSP for Dunfermline, said: “It’s great to see these new properties have now been completed in Halbeath and I’m glad they are already providing a welcoming new home for families.

“This project was supported by around £2.6m of funding from the Scottish Government, who have committed to delivering 110,000 affordable homes by 2032.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to tour the Carnegie Fauld development today and to learn more about how the partnership between Persimmon and Kingdom Housing is helping to support the local community here and across Fife.”

James MacKay, Persimmon North Scotland managing director, said: “Carnegie Fauld is a great example of our successful partnership with Kingdom Housing Association, which continues to deliver much-needed new homes for local families across Fife.

“It was great to welcome the Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP to the site to see the positive impact these new homes are already having in Halbeath.

“We’ll continue to work closely with our local partners to ensure our investment makes a positive difference to communities across Fife.”

Matthew Busher, Kingdom Group’s housing director, said: “The Kingdom Group’s mission is to provide ‘More than a Home’, supporting our customers to achieve long-term sustainable housing solutions for them and their families and to support community development.

“There is a demonstrable shortage of high-quality affordable housing in Fife, which is why it’s so important that partnerships such as this one are able to develop and deliver much-needed housing in the area. It forms an essential part of delivering ‘More than a Home’ and supporting the communities in which we operate.”
