This is the latest development in the Scottish government’s plans to build 50 000 new affordable homes in this term of government. I’ve already noted the difference between the Scottish and English governments on this crucial task:
Angus council will build 600 new homes over the next five years with the support of the £25 million package.
Communities convener, Councillor Craig Fotheringham, said:
‘We will improve the provision of affordable housing across Angus by building houses of the highest quality in the places where people need them most. Doing so will further enhance Angus’ ever-growing reputation as a great place to live, work and visit. Accessibility and energy efficiency will be the cornerstones of our housing design, so that we deliver homes that will stand the test of time for the benefit of people now and in future generations.’
