Blog series: New and emerging forms of tenure
On 3 April 2019 the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) co-organised a roundtable with Shelter Scotland, Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, Association of Local Authority Chief Housing Officers, Scottish Futures Trust, and Rettie & Co., to discuss the role of alternative tenures (build-to-rent, mid-market rent, shared ownership) and delivery/funding models, and how best to provide choice of tenure, within the wider context of delivering more affordable housing in Scotland.
Over the course of the meeting, attendees heard from three speakers whose presentations were summarised in the following blogs:
- Approaches to delivering alternative tenures
Professor Moira Munro, CaCHE Knowledge Exchange Lead for Scotland, reflects on the discussion that took place during the meeting.
- Flexibility and adaptability – mid-market rent and the supply of affordable housing
Dr Richard Jennings, from Castle Rock Edinvar, explores the role of mid-market rent – a form of affordable housing where tenants generally pay a lower rent than the market rent level in a given area, but more than local social housing tenants.
- Build to Rent is here to stay
Dr John Boyle from Rettie & Co. reflects on the small but growing Build to Rent market in Scotland.
- Options for affordable home ownership
Karen Campbell from Scottish Futures Trust focuses on emerging options for affordable home ownership for households across Scotland.
