Housing Regeneration is an essential mechanism for delivering the aims and objectives of Glasgow's Housing Strategy. The council has put in place a range of structures, resources and programmes to deliver these aims and objective in a co-coordinated, open, transparent and accountable way.
In September 2003, responsibility for management of the Housing Investment Programme in Glasgow transferred from the Scottish Government to the City Council. This Programme is a key resource for delivering Glasgow's Housing Strategy Investment Priorities.
Since 2005 the council has been working with Glasgow Housing Association and the Scottish Government on establishing a new approach to the regeneration of the eight key areas in the city, known as Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRAs). In 2009 Scottish Ministers gave the go ahead for an early action programme to be initiated.
The Scottish Government has introduced a Strategic Housing Investment Framework (SHIF) for the allocation of Development Funding resources. Glasgow's seventh Housing Investment Plan, was approved, following consultations, by the Council's Executive Committee and submitted to The Scottish Government in 2014.
