Project Details

The new development at Jenny Gray House, Lochgelly, is situated on the site of what was the former Jenny Gray House care home. It will bring a mixture of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom properties, consisting of amenity and wheelchair flats and bungalows. The development is aimed at providing housing for older persons and allocation of these properties will reflect that.

This development is one of the final projects from Fife Council's Phase 3 Affordable Housing Programme, which has delivered 3,500 new affordable houses across all areas of Fife. It's being built for the Council in partnership with Robertson Partnership Homes.

The new homes will provide tenants with energy efficient homes, which includes solar panels to help reduce utility costs. The properties will also meet Scottish Government Sustainability standards, Housing for Varying Needs, and Secure by Design.

Amenity properties will have wet floor showers, and wheelchair properties will have wet floor showers and specially designed kitchens with adjustable worktops.
