The Chartered Institute of Housing in Scotland says most Scottish councils have slashed budgets set aside for private housing refurbishment, following the Government's decision to end the ring-fencing of the non Housing Revenue Account allocation.

The Association says as a result, thousands of people have been forced to live in homes which are in urgent need of repair during the current financial year. The cash has instead been spent in other areas, such as education, social work, and roads and transport.

The amounts allocated for private housing renewal are set to be further reduced next year, said the Association.
