The Local Government and Communities Committee of the Scottish Parliament issued a call for evidence as part of pre-budget scrutiny ahead of the publication later in the year of the Scottish Government’s draft budget 2017/18.
The Committee’s pre-Budget scrutiny aims to look back at what has actually been spent in 2015/16 and (to the extent possible) to what was spent in 2016/17. The Committee has sought views on a number of questions posed, and will use written evidence received to inform oral evidence sessions from stakeholders later in the year.
We are keen to engage on funding issues in this sector, including the development and use of innovative funding approaches.
The availability of private funding at competitive rates will be key in ensuring the sector is able to play its part in delivering the government’s target of 50,000 new affordable homes over the life of the current Parliament.
