AS part of Fife Council’s Phase III Affordable Housing Programme a drop-in event is being held in the Corrie Centre, in Cardenden, to let villagers give their views on the new development.

On June 19 between 4 and 7pm, the information session is being held to discuss the proposed housing development on Cardenden Road and Carden Crescent.

The event will be hosted jointly by the developer and Fife Council's affordable housing staff. Members of the public are invited to discuss the proposals and view the proposed layout and house types.

Cllr Judy Hamilton, convener of the Community & Housing Services Committee, said: “We have successfully delivered Phase II of the Affordable Housing programme and many families across Fife are benefitting from living in the high quality homes.

"Phase Three of the programme aims to build on this success by continuing to work with our stakeholders, identify sites and deliver more council houses.

"Council officers will be at the venue to discuss the plans for the proposed site in Cardenden and I encourage people to go along ask questions and find out more.”

It is estimated that planning application will be submitted in the next few months. Once submitted, they will be made available to view online at and the standard consultation process for planning applications will begin.

Anyone who isn't able to make it along to the drop-in events can contact: Stewart McManus, Fife Council Housing Professional on 03451 555555 x456767 for more information.

Fife Council’s Affordable Housing Programme is working in partnership between Fife Council, Fife Housing Association Alliance, Private Developers and the Scottish Government. It delivered 2,700 Affordable Homes in Phase 2 (2012 – 2017), which saw Lochgelly, Kelty and Cowdenbeath benefit.

Fife Council is committed to the continuation of its Affordable Housing Programme, which will deliver 3,500 new Affordable Homes from 2017 – 2022. (Phase 3)
