Yes. There will be opportunities for more investment in affordable housing in an independent Scotland. Full flexibility over Scotland’s budgets, only available through independence, will enable future Scottish governments to:
broaden action to make more affordable housing available to alleviate homelessness and tackle fuel poverty
take action to further improve the quality of housing, for example in the social rented sector
introduce different ways of supporting first time buyers
