Scotland’s affordable housing supply continues to increase ahead of non-Scottish parts

In Scottish Housing News today:

Plans to invest more than £150 million to continue the development of affordable housing across Aberdeenshire over the next five years have been agreed. The Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP) outlines opportunities across the area from 2019-2024. Having been agreed by Aberdeenshire Council’s communities committee, the document has now been passed to the Scottish Government, which will provide funding for the projects. Over the course of the next five years, 2,354 homes could potentially be built across Aberdeenshire, with around 590 suitable for households with particular needs, and 73 fully accessible for wheelchair users.
