Affordable, sustainable and accessible homes

Fife Council’s affordable housebuilding programme continued with the construction of a further 17 new affordable and energy efficient homes on the former site of the Cupar police station.

This development is part of the Fife Council's housing building programme, and the first of seven projects that Robertson are contracted to deliver for the council supporting the ambitious delivery of new homes across the region.

Affordable homes for the long term

The need for social and affordable housing is ever pressing, and these homes are a great example of quality council-led homes that will be affordable to rent and live in long term.

Sustainable construction to achieve low running costs

We have constructed the homes to highly energy efficient designs, to help the Fife Council achieve their target of increasing their stock of high-quality housing. 

All homes are fitted with sprinkler systems recognising both Fife and Scottish Government criteria for safety to be paramount in newly built homes.

Features will keep energy bills low for the residents, underlining the Council's commitment to the natural environment and the wellbeing of its communities.

Long-lasting community impact

Working in the heart of the community, we recognise the important part we play to create and generate social impact, helping to leave a legacy for years to come.
