Since April 2007, 70,861 affordable homes have been delivered in Scotland alone.
Ben Macpherson MSP said: “These figures demonstrate Scotland’s strong position when it comes to building new homes – outperforming England with a third more affordable homes over the last decade.
“This demonstrates the stark difference between the SNP and the Tories, who have let housebuilding drop to its lowest level in England since 1923, whilst cutting winter fuel payments for the elderly and lumping the ‘bedroom tax’ on the vulnerable. “Since coming to office, the SNP has built more than 70,000 affordable homes and will continue to increase affordable housing with our ambitious target to deliver 50,000 homes during the lifetime of this Parliament, backed by £3 billion of investment. “Making sure everyone has a safe, warm and affordable home is central to the SNP government’s drive for a fairer and more prosperous Scotland.”
Regeneration and community commitment is at the forefront of all Urban Union projects. In Muirton alone we are building 101 private for sale properties and 102 social properties, and so far the feedback on these has been excellent.
