Housing Strategy

What is it?

Glasgow's Housing Strategy sets out the Housing Issues and priorities for the city, and provides a strategic framework for housing in all tenures. It represents a shared understanding developed in partnership with housing interests and stakeholders in the city.

Summary of the Housing Strategy

A Summary version of Glasgow's Housing Strategy (GHS) is also available. GHS was approved by the Council's Executive Committee on 1st March 2012.

There are three key themes in the GHS:

  • Regeneration: Increasing the supply and improving the quality of housing available to Glasgow's people.
  • Accessibility to Housing: Improving access to appropriate housing for Glasgow's people.
  • Delivery through Partnership: Maximising resources, improving partnership working and effective monitoring.

Key areas covered in the GHS include:

The GHS has been developed based on two years of extensive pdf icon consultation [63kb] and research.

The GHS is underpinned by a continuing programme of research and policy analysis including the pdf icon Glasgow and Clyde Valley Housing Need and Demand Assessment [7Mb] and a suite of assessment including Strategic Environment Assessment and Post-Adoption SEA Statement, Health Impact Assessment and Equalities Impact Assessment.

Review of GHS Stock

Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government agreed at the stock transfer in 2003 that a review of the outlook of pdf icon demand in the social rented sector [43kb]in the city should be carried out every three years.

The Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP) is a key part of the GHS and is the statement of housing development priorities which guide the allocation of affordable housing investment funding.

Further research has also taken place which links into the GHS:
