We must make land available for low cost housing and ensure more homes are built where they are needed. Andy Wightman MSP

Responding to Scottish Government statistics revealing a rise in children living in temporary accommodation, the Scottish Greens have reiterated their call for the Scottish Government to help make more land available for low cost housing. 

Scottish Greens housing spokesperson Andy Wightman MSP said:

“Homelessness remains an issue that we urgently need to get to grips with and these figures prove that. What is now clear is that we urgently require a radical programme of housing reforms to deliver thousands of quality, affordable and sustainable homes. We must make land available for low cost housing and ensure more homes are built where they are needed. This is what we campaigned for in the last election and we’re ready to speak to the government about taking these proposals forward.”
