New Build Council Houses

Fife Council is leading the way in Scotland by investing in its housing stock, benefiting current tenants and generations to come.

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 and we now have an ambitious target to deliver 2700 affordable homes by 2017 .

These new developments offer a real mix of house types to complement our existing range of properties and are highly energy efficient.

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 explored.

How do I get a new build council house?

Where possible, new build properties are allocated to existing tenants in housing need - such as those in overcrowded or under-occupied houses. 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). 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.
