Bold homes plan

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment have presided over a £60 mil­lion cut in the hous­ing bud­get.

It is sim­ply not good enough to ten­ants in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang for the SNP to try and blame West­min­ster for their fail­ure in a pol­icy area which is en­tirely de­volved.

We need to fo­cus on in­creas­ing the sup­ply of af­ford­able hous­ing.

We want to bring house-build­ing starts to 25,000 a year – back to pre-re­ces­sion lev­els within five years. This should be a mix of hous­ing but qual­ity, af­ford­able homes must play a part.

The Scot­tish Con­ser­va­tive and Union­ist plan will ad­dress the hous­ing short­age by in­vest­ing in 100,000 new homes by 2021.

Lo­cal peo­ple will see hous­ing wait­ing lists tack­led be­cause we have a bold plan to in­vest in hous­ing in our com­mu­nity.
