Dundee welcomes £2.4m social housing boost
A funding boost that will help build more social housing in Dundee has been welcomed by a local councillor.
Kevin Cordell, convener of Dundee City Council’s neighbourhood services committee, said that the extra £2.4 million from the Scottish Government will support the programme to create 1000 more homes in four years.
He said: “This brings the money we will be able to invest in social housing in Dundee up to £37.3m over the next two years and means that we can build 30 to 40 more homes for people who need them.
“Along with our Registered Social Landlord partners we’ll continue with our programme of strategic housing investment to deliver affordable new homes in areas that people want to live in.”
