10 MILLION POUNDS TO BE INVESTED IN NEW DUNDEE HOMES
“Over the next two years, more than £10m is set to be invested in bringing affordable new homes to Dundee”, according to a revised Strategic Housing Investment Plan revealed by the city council, which will go before the local authority next week
Councillor John Alexander, in recognising the need for more affordable housing said the following:
“… with the best will in the world, it is not at all easy creating safe, energy-efficient homes from scratch in the places people want to live.
“That’s why we are discussing such projects with social landlords across the city now and being as flexible and adaptable as we can in our approach.”
In explaining the progress that the Scottish Government has made in providing housing in the city, Depute Convener, Kevin Cordell also had this to say:
“They have now announced funding for the affordable housing supply programme of £10.6m this financial year- almost double our allocation in 2015/2016.
“While our main priority continues to be in the regeneration areas of Mill O’mains, Whitfield, Lochee and Hilltown, additional allocations will allow us to look at meeting housing needs in other neighbourhoods.
“It could also create opportunities to improve housing choice that will ensure existing stable neighbourhoods are sustained and we continue to meet the requirements of people with particular housing needs.
“This will contribute towards the aims and objectives of the recently launched Dundee Fairness Commission report which highlights the need for affordable housing and sustainable communities”, reports Evening Telegraph
