Affordable Housing Need in Scotland - Final Report

This report presents the findings from research conducted in 2015 which sought to estimate the need for affordable housing across Scotland as a whole. The research was commissioned by Shelter Scotland, the Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland and the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA).

The core model estimates an affordable housing requirement in Scotland of 12,014 dwellings per annum over five years. This represents 64.2 per cent of the expected net increase in households in Scotland (18,704) over the next five years.
