Scotland launches an affordable housing campaign

A campaign to build 10,000 affordable homes for rent has been launched in Scotland to boost the economy and meet the demand for cheap housing. The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations is backing the campaign. It said this year would provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to ‘build a meaningful and lasting legacy’ for Scotland. Scotland has more than 470,000 people on waiting lists for affordable housing, an increase of 46 per cent since 2000.
