We support enshrining the right to housing as a basic human right in an independent Scotland.
We want a housing policy protecting those who are the most vulnerable from extortion and abuse by private landlords, and ensuring that basic healthy standards of living are provided across the rental market.
We want to see more good quality affordable social housing being built throughout Scotland. Proper planning to include space for recreation must be included by developers.
The creation of a Scottish Investment bank affords the possibility of increased investment in housing development to help drive forward affordable housing construction, and could lend itself to innovative policies, such as low-interest entry-level mortgages for first-time buyers.
