Ore Valley Housing Association was registered in 1991 by a voluntary committee all of whom were resident in Cardenden, with the aim of achieving the transfer of housing stock from Scottish Homes, and with stock transfers successfully taking place in 1995 and 1997. Since then, we have developed, and managed additional new housing designed to a high standard to meet local housing needs, adding new build homes in the Cardenden, Lochgelly and Lochore areas of Central Fife.
