New green homes are being created in Dunfermline as part of Fife Council's ongoing Affordable Housing Programme.

The new council-owned properties are located in the Abbeyview area of Dunfermline and are being developed by the local authority in partnership with Persimmon Homes, Scottish Housing News reports.

Each of the new homes benefits from extensive levels of thermal insulation and investment in the latest sustainable and energy-saving technologies to ensure future residents will enjoy the lowest possible running costs and emissions.

The development began in March this year and will deliver a total of 49 new properties when complete. It will see the creation of a range of property types, running from one-bed cottages up to five-bedroom homes.

Councillor Judy Hamilton, Fife Council executive spokesperson for housing and building services, stated: "This programme of house building is really picking up pace and I'm so pleased to be here to see the good work on these new developments.

"As well as the very significant benefits to the people who will live in these quality, warmer homes, we're delighted to offer employment opportunities whilst construction work goes on here."

Overall, the scheme forms part of an ambitious housing development pipeline in the county, with up to 2,700 new, affordable and sustainable properties set to be built as part of the council's Affordable Housing Programme by the end of next year.
