CIH Scotland comments on Housing to 2040 stakeholder engagement report

20/05/2019


Responding to the publication of a new stakeholder engagement report by the Scottish Government on Housing to 2040, Callum Chomczuk, national director of CIH Scotland said:

“This update from the Scottish Government on its Housing to 2040 engagement process is welcome.

“There is a need for the sector and government to work together to build a long-term vision about how our homes and communities should look, and it is encouraging to see a clear timeline in place to develop a shared plan.”

He continued:

“New affordable housing plays a major role in reducing poverty, addressing health inequalities and growing the economy, and it is vital that investment in supply continues beyond this Parliament. We are currently commissioning research with Shelter Scotland and the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) on what investment is needed after 2021 and will ensure that these findings feed into the review.

“We look forward to continuing to make the case that building the right number of homes in the right places is the best way to achieve Scotland's social, economic and environmental objectives.”

ENDS
