15,000 new homes are to be built in Glasgow over the next five years as Glasgow City Council’s Executive Committee today (19 January) approved the city’s Housing Strategy between 2017 and 2022.
Glasgow’s Housing Strategy outlines the long-term vision for the city’s housing and is founded on two main themes:
The strategy includes targets for new build housing – 15,000 new homes are expected to be built by 2022 – the promotion of area regeneration and actions for maintaining and improving Glasgow’s existing housing stock. It will be used to inform future housing investment and related services in the city.
Within the two main themes of the strategy are six strategic priorities and 50 key actions to be achieved by 2022.
Councillor Frank McAveety, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “Our homes are undoubtedly one of the biggest contributors to our quality of life, and through this strategy, we aim to ensure that the people of Glasgow are able to find the best and most suitable housing they can. Over the next five years, Glasgow’s Housing Strategy will play its part in our efforts to create sustainable communities with affordable homes in the city, with 15,000 new homes being built.”
The council consulted extensively with a range of organisations, with 16 consultation events held and five pieces of research commissioned, all of which helped to help shape the final strategy document.
