SNP MSP Richard Lochhead (Pictured) has welcomed new figures that show 371 new build homes were completed in Moray last year.
The latest statistics from the Scottish Government show that over 9,300 affordable homes were delivered in 2019 across the country, an increase of more than 25% since 2016
Meanwhile, the number of homes for social rent in Moray hit 184 last year – of which 102 were new council homes and 82 were housing association properties.
Welcoming the news, SNP MSP for Moray Richard Lochhead said:
“Having a home to call your own really matters – that’s why the SNP Government has made the delivery of thousands of new affordable homes a priority.
“Just last year alone, we’ve seen 371 new homes completed in Moray, 184 of which are for social rent.
“On top of our commitment to deliver 50,000 affordable homes, we’re helping first-time buyers here in Moray get on the property ladder by lending them a chunk of their deposit.
“I’m proud that this SNP Government is getting on with the day-job, and is quite literally, building for the future of Scotland.”
