Development & Housing

We are attracting investment into Scotland’s towns, cities and communities to deliver housing, improve public service delivery, secure economic benefits, and contribute to Scotland’s net zero carbon target.


The housing team is responsible for developing initiatives that support the delivery of homes across Scotland with a focus on affordable housing.

Our initiatives have consistently helped contribute toward Scotland's housing targets and needs and we are engaged in the development of a number of new solutions that can further support the delivery of housing up to 2040.  This includes focussing on town centre living and how Councils could take a more direct delivery role for housing across all tenures to satisfy local need 

We have a proven track record in the provision of mid-market rent housing through evolving programmes including the National Housing Trust (NHT) and Housing Delivery Partnerships and have also developed an approach to the supply of homes for shared home ownership, ‘Home Ownership Made Easy’. 

Our work also assists, at a strategic level, with interventions to unlock strategic housing sites.
