Scotland target hopes fading

Scottish government housing statistics report a 12% fall in new starts in the year to the end of September 2022. There was also a 27% drop in housing association approvals to build new homes.

Homes for Scotland (HFS) Chief Executive Jane Wood said the government’s target to build more than 110,000 affordable homes by 2032 will be difficult to hit, but the appointment of Scotland’s new first minister was an opportunity “to review the regulatory areas and other issues creating blockers to residential development across sectors to ensure that housing in Scotland meets the needs and aspirations of everyone living here”.
