Scottish Land & Estates believes that a range of flexible options must be created to deliver local solutions to housing need. Scottish Land & Estates is working to increase the affordable housing supply in rural Scotland by:
  • Increasing effective land supply through planning, infrastructure and stakeholder engagement.
  • Bringing empty and redundant buildings back into use.
  • Working in partnership with public sector bodies.
  • Raising awareness of rural planning policy to facilitate affordable housing, particularly in relation to rural exception sites.
  • Providing advice and guidance on current delivery mechanisms, such as the provision of affordable self build plots with rural housing burdens attached.
  • Supporting those developing properties through the rural homes for rent grant pilot and lobbying the Scottish Government for further funding for this delivery mechanism.
  • Partnership working with other agencies to develop innovative solutions.
  • Exploring the use of legal and planning agreements to deliver affordable housing in perpetuity.
