Housing future paper welcomed by self-build body

A HOUSING strategy document imagining Scotland’s housing ecology for the next 20 years has been welcomed by an UK-wide body promoting custom and self-build housing.

The National Custom and Self Build Association (NaCSBA) was responding to the recent publication, by the Scottish Government, of Housing to 2040.

Says NaCSBA, here: “NaCSBA welcomes the fact that the plans are also substantive, and build on the successes of the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019, which made provision for Scottish authorities to prepare lists of people wanting to self-build.

“It also works with the ambitions set out in the draft National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4) and the role of Community Land Scotland working to bring on land for a range of uses, including plots in rural communities.”
