The SNP are committed to ensuring everyone has a warm and safe place to live.
Therefore, if re-elected, the SNP will deliver a further 100,000 affordable homes by 2032 with at least 70% of these for social rent.
Once the current 50,000 affordable homes target has been delivered, we will meet this new target through a combination of new build homes and bringing existing housing stock back into use.
This commitment to delivering a further 100,000 affordable homes will see around 12 – 14,000 jobs each year.
Furthermore, the SNP will introduce a new Housing Standard, set in law by 2025 to cover all homes ensuring that the quality of existing homes keeps pace with new homes. This will include repairing and safety standards, minimum space standards, digital connectivity, future-proofing of homes, and energy efficiency and heating standards.
The new Housing Standard will ensure that the quality of existing homes in Scotland keeps pace with new homes.
Finally, we will increase the supply and choice of accessible and adapted homes and introduce a new Scottish Accessible Homes Standard in law.
