Social housing in Scotland

This paper is part of a series published by the CaCHE Social Housing Policy Working Group.

It presents a short overview of social rented housing in Scotland since devolution, with the aim of opening up a discussion of what are increasingly diverging social housing policies across the UK. The paper covers the phased abolition of the Right to Buy in Scotland, the targeted increase in affordable housing supply across Scotland, delivery of the supply programme, tenant accountability issues, and the final section proposes lessons that are raised from the Scottish experience.
