SNP-led Glasgow City Council allocates record £104m funding for affordable homes

In this extract and in the above headline from Scottish housing News yesterday, I’ve helpfully added, for clarification, using BBC Scotland’s ‘Natalie McGarry is SNP!’ method, ‘SNP-led’ which might help any reader who think Labour’s reign in Glasgow goes on:

‘SNP-led Glasgow City Council has allocated £104 million to its affordable housing supply programme, the highest-ever figure for the city. The funding will help deliver over 3,500 affordable homes over the next two years, the council said. The council’s neighbourhoods, housing and public realm committee today approved the building of new affordable homes through the AHSP programme. The £104.44 million funding for the AHSP covers not only the continuation of ongoing projects and the beginning of new projects, but also medical adaptation to homes in Glasgow, allowing tenants to remain in their own homes.’
