New Build Council Houses

Fife Council’s Housing & Neighbourhood Services is leading the way in Scotland by investing in its housing stock, benefiting current tenants and generations to come. At the same time, we are faced with the need to make substantial savings and we are doing this through new, better and more efficient ways of delivering our services.

With the aid of Scottish Government funding, Fife Council has already spent over £25m on nine new council housing developments in Fife, providing 241 new homes. A further £85m has been identified for further developments due to be completed by 2017.

These new developments offer a real mix of house types to complement our existing range of properties. They are highly energy efficient and include additional features such as solar panels and sprinkler systems.

Partnership working with Housing Associations and private developers has been integral to the delivery of these and other new affordable homes and this will continue as more innovative ways of delivering affordable housing are considered.

How do I get a new build council house?

Where possible, new build properties are allocated to existing tenants. This makes the homes which the tenants of the new properties have moved from available so that the needs of more households can be met through further allocations.

New Council properties are allocated through the Fife Housing Register (FHR). Therefore, if you are a tenant of Fife Council or one of our FHR partners (Kingdom Housing Association; Fife Housing Association; Ore Valley Housing Association; Glen Housing Association) and you wish to be considered for one of these new homes, please complete an FHR application form, available from any Local Office, Home4Good Centre or download here. Remember to select the areas where new properties are planned or under construction.
