Forth Ports Authority have bid for the loan to build 1 000 affordable homes on derelict ground in the Western Harbour. You’ll be aware that there is a massive demand for such housing across the UK and that the Scottish government is building twice as many per capita as is the English government.
This is a massive build which will make a real difference to the situation in Edinburgh. Those with a joint household income of less than £39,000 and are economically active will be able to apply. The government initiative has been described as innovative by the ports authority.
