Affordable Housing

It is not enough to ensure there is good quality housing in Edinburgh. There must be enough affordable housing, and this includes social housing. Over the course of this Parliament, the SNP will build 50,000 affordable homes. It has already delivered 30,000 in addition to 5,000 new council homes between 2011-2015. More than £1.75 billion has been allocated to local councils for affordable housing – £30 million of this will be invested in Edinburgh.
