There is a very high need for affordable housing in the north Fife area and unfortunately, there is a shortage of sites to meet the needs. The project is intended to help meet both current and future housing needs in the area and to help to sustain local communities. Kingdom aims to provide high-quality housing to meet the local needs in the local area and the planning authority accepted the proposed development as being of acceptable size to meet the needs in the area.
