SNP ON TARGET TO MEET AFFORDABLE HOUSING TARGET

ALMOST 90,000 HOMES DELIVERED SINCE 2007
 
The Scottish Government is on-track to meet its target of delivering 50,000 new affordable homes by 2021 – backed by £3.3 billion of funding – new figures have confirmed.   

Official statistics show that more than half have been completed and almost two-thirds approved, meaning the SNP is on-track to meet the 2021 target.
 
Since 2007, a total of almost 90,000 affordable homes have been delivered by the SNP in government -  including 59,131 homes for social rent, 6,575 homes for affordable rent, and 20,403 homes for affordable home ownership.
 
Commenting, James Dornan MSP said:
 
“The SNP has made the delivery of new homes a priority since being elected to office in 2007, having delivered almost 90,000 affordable homes since we entered office.
 
“These new figures show we’re on track to reach our target of at least 50,000 affordable homes over the course of this parliament – backed by £3.3 billion investment.

“In fact, we’ve delivered more council houses than have been built in all of England – not per person, but in actual homes built.
 
“Labour and the Lib Dems have embarrassingly little to show for their time in office, and with the Tories presiding over a chronic housing shortage in England - it’s clear that only the SNP is taking decisive action to deliver more houses for people in Scotland.
 
“The SNP in government is – quite literally – building for the future of Scotland.”
