Affordable housing investment continues in Clackmannanshire



Clackmannanshire Council is working with the Scottish Government and local partners to ensure that recent investment in delivering affordable housing for local people continues in the years ahead.

In 2017-18, over £5 million was invested in Clackmannanshire which resulted in 76 new builds and 11 properties bought on the open market. This continues the record number of new rented housing in the area.

The Scottish Government has confirmed that a further £5.074 million will be invested in housing in Clackmannanshire over the year ahead. Combined with funding from the council’s Capital budget of £1.2 million, the local authority will be working in partnership with Kingdom Housing Association and other registered social landlords to deliver new social housing across Clackmannanshire.

Housing & environment spokesperson Councillor Craig Holden said: “I am delighted that the Scottish Government is continuing to make significant investment in Clackmannanshire to help us deliver new high quality affordable housing for local residents.

“The benefits to our residents of living in good quality and secure houses cannot be over-estimated as we work towards improving the lives of everyone in Clackmannanshire through our Local Outcome Improvement Plan, and reducing the numbers of those experiencing the greatest disadvantage and inequality. Our plans for new housing are spread across Clackmannanshire so that all our communities experience these benefits, and I look forward to seeing the new houses taking shape over the coming months.”
