We would like to make members aware that a new Rural Housing Fund has been launched by Scottish Government. The fund is designed to assist with the development of new affordable housing in rural areas. The fund can be used for both new-build housing and conversions. As well as the main fund there is also a feasibility fund to help with the initial stages of a development.
Scottish Land & Estates has been involved in the creation of this fund and believe it offers a great opportunity for members.
An information sheet is available on our website here. There is a link to the full guidance document at the end of the information sheet.
We recommend members submit their expressions of interest to the Scottish Government as soon as possible.
