Strategic Housing Investment Plan

Information about the Strategic Housing Investment Plan 2020 to 2025.

We're required to supplement their Local Housing Strategy (LHS) with a 5 year Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP).

The SHIP sets out our current planned investment of £40m in nearly 630 new affordable homes. This includes homes to rent from the council and housing associations.

New estates will be a mix of these homes. These will be in areas with the greatest shortage.

The investment for this work will come from the Scottish Government, the council and housing associations.

We'll also work with developers to create affordable homes. These include low cost home ownership or homes to rent below market levels.

The plan

  • Has been developed with key partners, including housing associations and our planning service
  • Reflects housing investment priorities for the local area, based on what types of homes are needed and where, to meet housing need and demand
  • Gives detail about the projects funded from 2019 to 2024 to help us tackle these priorities
