A key event in the house building industry’s calendar – Fife Council’s annual House Builders Forum – will take place at the Lochgelly Centre on the afternoon of Tuesday 26 November.


Fife’s 13th House Builders Forum – ‘Realising Opportunities – Mid-Fife Matters’ – is designed to help develop industry partnerships and increase housing supply and development.  This year, the Forum explores the theme of ‘Realising Opportunity’ and considers current issues that affect the house building industry, as well as looking at priorities for the sector.


All house building industry sectors – from small to medium-sized firms to multi-national operators – are welcome to attend.


Th council is also keen to attract developers from outwith Fife to the event.


The key note address from Fife Council will focus on the significant capital investment in regeneration and infrastructure coming to Fife from two City Deals – the Tay Cities Deal and Edinburgh and SE Scotland City Region Deal.


The conference programme also includes a presentation by Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) whose address follows hot on the heels of Fife Council and the Scottish Government’s declaration of a ‘Climate Emergency’.


Cllr David Ross, Fife Council Co-Leader, said: “The Fife House Builders Forum is a great opportunity for industry professionals to come together.  At Fife Council we have a steadfast commitment to collaboration and sharing of best practice.  Our own affordable housing programme is highly successful and already challenging us to drive innovation across the industry to remove barriers to development.”


Co-Leader Cllr David Alexander added: “Anyone associated with Fife’s house building industry should attend – house builders, development companies and those working within construction-related professionals.  It’s important for public and private sectors to continue to work together and for all of  us to engage well with communities.


“This event will showcase the investment and innovation opportunities within the region and describe the improving market conditions within Mid-Fife.


“Mid-Fife has readily available sites, good infrastructure including existing transport links and lots of potential.  It includes a high quality natural and built environment and is set to benefit from considerable new investment.  This includes over £70 million of funding for a dedicated rail link to serve Levenmouth and the surrounding areas.”
