Affordable homes funding boost for Glasgow

JUST over £100million is to be spent on providing new, ‘affordable’ homes in Glasgow during this financial year, 2022/23.

Says the local authority, which is awarding the funding: “The council will allocate almost £104million to Housing Associations and private developers to build new affordable homes in the city in 2022/23.”

It adds, here: “879 new affordable homes were completed through the [city’s Affordable Homes Supply Programme] AHSP in 2021/22, with work on 795 beginning, and approval given for 531. Just over £3million was spent on medical adaptations for Housing Association homes.

“The council [yesterday] approved the budget for the 2022/23 financial year, with a target of 919 completed new affordable homes, work beginning on 665, and approval expected for 691. It is expected that a similar sum will be spent on medical adaptations over this period.”
