HIGHLANDS & ISLANDS SLAM SCOTTISH HOMES OVER CASH SHARE

Housing associations in the Scottish Highlands and Islands have criticised national housing agency Scottish Homes for not spending enough in remote rural areas, reported The Scotsman (17 Jan, p10).

The housing associations, including the Albyn Housing Society and the Lochaber Housing Association, want the government to give them and rural councils more money to help deal with a housing shortage in their areas. They claim Scottish Homes is spending too much in urban areas, and that when it does spend in rural areas it is mainly in the larger settlements, ignoring the remote areas.

The charge was denied by Scottish Homes, which said more money would be spent by the agency in remote areas in the next financial year.
