The proposal is for 40 homes for affordable rent, built on a greenfield site on the southern edge of the town.

In the run-up to lodging the planning application with Fife Council, the Association is carrying out a public consultation exercise locally. It has already met with Newburgh Community Council to discuss the proposals, and will hold a public drop-in event at the Tayside Institute on Monday 21st November, from 3.30pm to 7.30pm, to which all neighbours and other interested parties are invited.

Bill Banks, chief executive at Kingdom, said: "There is a great need for more affordable housing in Newburgh, and we believe the opportunity for local people to access high-quality housing at an affordable rent will prove very popular. The site and location is a good one, and – if we receive planning permission – we and Robertson Partnership Homes would intend to begin construction in the summer of 2017.

"In the meantime, we are happy to have an opportunity to display our plans and discuss the proposals with local residents."
