Housing has a vital role to play in meeting many of our ambitions for Scotland, including eradicating child poverty and homelessness, ending fuel poverty, tackling the effects of climate change and promoting inclusive growth.
The Scottish Government’s ambition is that everyone in Scotland should live in high quality, energy-efficient homes that are affordable and that meet your needs. They also want to ensure we have a housing system that is dynamic and resilient enough to respond to future changes and can help to address the number of challenges we are facing, including an ageing population and a global climate emergency.
In the 2019-2020 Programme for Government, they reaffirmed their commitment to planning together with stakeholders for how our homes and communities should look and feel in 2040 and the options and choices to get there.
Now is the time to reimagine our housing system, and to do that, the Government want to continue to build on the collective wisdom and expertise from across the wide and varied housing sector and from communities across Scotland. The Scottish Government want to hear people’s views on our draft vision and principles for 2040 and their ideas for how to make them a reality.
