Renfrewshire Council

Strategic Housing Investment Plan

Consultation on the new Draft Strategic Housing Investment Plan 2023 to 2028

Consultation on the new draft Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP), which covers the period 2023 to 2028 has commenced with comments, feedback and suggestions invited from all stakeholders until 23 September 2022. The proposed draft can be viewed on this page.

Comments and feedback received from this consultation will be used to shape and then finalise the new ambitious Strategic Housing Investment Plan for the next five years. 

The Scottish Government allocates grant funding to local authority areas through the Affordable Housing Supply Programme. Local authorities are required to prepare and update a Strategic Housing Investment Plan each year which sets out key investment priorities for affordable housing which will help to achieve the outcomes set out in Renfrewshire's Local Housing Strategy.

Affordable Housing can include a range of tenures and includes homes for social rent, low cost home ownership/shared equity, intermediate/Mid-Market Rent and private sector delivered below market cost housing.

Following the consultation period, representations will be taken into account before finalising the Strategic Housing Investment Plan which will be submitted for approval to the Council's Communities and Housing Policy Board in October 2022. The final Strategic Housing Investment Plan will then be submitted to the Scottish Government.

We would ask that any comments are provided by email wherever possible. Comments can be sent to:  strategyandplace@renfrewshire.gov.uk.

Whilst the easiest way to respond for most people will be by email, we can also accept comments by post. Please send any comments to: Place Strategy Team, Chief Executive's Service, Renfrewshire Council, Renfrewshire House, Cotton Street, Paisley, PA1 1WB.
