NHT Council Variant

With a focus on innovation, in 2013 SFT trialled a new affordable-rent initiative – the NHT Council Variant – with Stirling Council as the lead partner. The Council Variant allows local authorities to either build or buy homes to be let at affordable-rent.

This initiative in Stirling will, over time, see 170 homes purchased and let. Such has been its appeal that the Council Variant is currently being explored by a number of local authorities - Scottish Borders Council has also now entered into a joint venture with SFT for 200 NHT Council Variant homes.
