Web Editor General News

More than £350 million is to be invested into Glasgow to fund thousands of affordable homes over the next four years.

A report set to be presented to councillors this week has detailed the amount provided by the Scottish Government for the council to hand over to social landlords and private developers for affordable housing.

This year, the budget to cover projects agreed in previous years, new developments and the cost of paying for medical adaptations is almost £67m.

The cash will result in 882 new affordable homes being provided in the city.
