Glasgow approves plan for 15,000 new homes over five years

January 20, 2017

15,000 new homes are to be built in Glasgow over the next five years after councillors agreed a new long-term vision for the city.

The Housing Strategy for 2017/22, which was given the green light by Glasgow City Council’s executive committee yesterday, is founded on the two main themes of increasing the supply and improving the quality of housing available to Glasgow’s people and improving access to appropriate housing for the city’s people.

The strategy includes targets for new build housing, the promotion of area regeneration and actions for maintaining and improving Glasgow’s existing housing stock. It will be used to inform future housing investment and related services in the city.

Within the two main themes of the strategy are six strategic priorities and 50 key actions to be achieved by 2022.
