MSP Welcomes Figures Showing Housing Target on Track

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed figures showing the Scottish Government is on track to meet its affordable housing target.
New statistics have shown an increase of 745 homes across all sectors, from 18,683 in 2016 to 2017 to 19,428 in 2017 to 2018.

This is the fifth consecutive increase and the highest annual figure since 2008 to 2009.

The figures also show affordable housing approvals have totalled 11,926 homes, up 12% (1,252 homes) on the previous year.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“I would like to welcome the news the Scottish Government has now delivered more than 78,000 affordable homes since 2007.

“The figures show we are on track to deliver at least 50,000 affordable homes over this Parliament, including 35,000 for social rent.

“This is backed by more than £3 billion - the single biggest investment in, and delivery of, affordable housing since devolution and we are determined to see it benefit all parts of Scotland.

"Making sure everyone has a safe, warm and affordable home is central to the drive for a fairer and more prosperous Scotland.”
