Housing in Scotland: Current Context and Preparing for the Future
Solace Scotland, in collaboration with the Association of Local Authority Chief Housing Officers (ALACHO) have published a report ‘Housing in Scotland: Current Context and Preparing for the Future’ which details their assessment of the housing emergency in Scotland and the steps needed to address it. The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) also provided contributions and will seek political views after the recess period.
It sets out the unsustainable pressure on local authority housing, the challenges and barriers that are limiting the supply of new homes and social rent tenancies and recommends action needed to implement change at pace and scale.
