Stevenson Welcomes 160 Affordable New Homes for Aberdeenshire

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has welcomed an announcement today (Monday) that up to 160 new affordable homes will be provided in the north east as part of Scottish Government led initiative.

The homes will be available for affordable mid-market rents on six sites across the region through the National Housing Trust initiative (NHT). Across Scotland, the NHT initiative is on track to deliver over 2,000 new homes, all without the need for grant subsidy, and developed by the Scottish Government and Scottish Futures Trust.

The first development of 24 homes at Westhill is almost complete.

Mr Stevenson said:

“There is a significant demand for affordable housing in the north east and this announcement will go some way towards meeting that demand.

“It is good to see the Scottish Government, Scottish Future’s Trust and Aberdeenshire Council working together to make this happen. This move will play a key role in giving individuals and families across Aberdeenshire the opportunity to rent a new home at affordable rates.”

The Scottish Government remains on track to deliver its target of 30,000 new affordable homes over the lifetime of the Parliament.
