How an SNP-run council honestly presents the funding of new affordable homes

There have been a few recent announcements by local authorities of their investment in affordable housing. They tend to take the credit all to themselves even though

East Renfrew were the latest today:

East Renfrewshire Council forgets to credit Scottish Government funding for affordable housing

I’ve written a few times giving the credit the Scottish Government deserves for its uniquely (in the UK) progressive stance:

‘Social housing on the up in Scotland’

Moray Council is of course SNP-run so they do the honest thing:

‘Moray Council is on course to complete more than 240 new affordable homes over the next three years. The previous three years have seen a total of 180 affordable homes built and allocated across the area……As part of the More Homes Scotland initiative, the Scottish Government has committed to investing over £3billion to build 50,000 affordable houses over the next five years….To achieve this priority, the government is encouraging councils to prepare for a significant increase in their resource allocations beyond 2018.’

    John, Moray Council is not SNP run. SNP is largest group but administration is Tory/Independent. Council statement is simply giving credit where it is due.
