Fabric improvements carried out on private sector housing in Glasgow

ALMOST £8m of local authority funding has been spent on improving the fabric of private housing in Glasgow.

The £7.8m was spent during the last financial year, 2021/22, from the city council’s Private Sector Housing Grant Programme.

And says the council, here: “This work includes fabric repairs and maintenance, and disabled adaptations, and with around 66 per cent (over 208,000) of Glasgow homes in private ownership, is therefore a key part of the city’s housing strategy priority of managing, maintaining and improving existing housing stock.”

And the announcement adds: “The council has been working with housing associations across the city to improve privately-owned homes in areas including Calton, East Pollokshields, Ibrox/Cessnock, Govanhill and Priesthill.”
