New Build Affordable Housing Target Met

House

We can confirm that we have met our 2018/19 target for new build affordable homes, with 33 Council and 95 Housing Association properties delivered through the Affordable Housing Supply Programme!

The Scottish Government allocates money each year to part fund affordable housing projects to help achieve their target of 50,000 new supply affordable homes over the lifetime of the parliament.  If councils don’t spend their allocated funds, it goes back into a ring-fenced housing fund.

For the second year running our Angus programme was able to claim more than its allocated funding, due to slippage elsewhere.

This year over £8m of grant money was claimed which is a substantial increase from previous years.
