Homes Fit for the 21st Century: The Scottish Government’s Strategy and Action Plan for Housing in the Next Decade: 2011-2020

This report was published in February 2011.

“Housing is a key part of our physical, economic, and social fabric. Getting housing “right” would contribute to our Purpose of sustainable economic growth to enable all of Scotland to flourish. It would also help us achieve the country’s full potential through better educational and employment opportunities, healthier lives and a more prosperous and equal society. 1 Accessible, affordable housing and attractive local environments can contribute significantly to our wider aims to tackle poverty and health inequalities and to build confidence and capacity in communities. High quality housing and its surrounding environment helps to give our children the best start in life – for example through play areas where they can develop social skills and improve physical health.”
