City housing leads the way

Have your say

Nearly a third of all of Scotland’s new affordable housing planning approvals were made in Edinburgh last year, new Scottish Government figures have shown.

Edinburgh City Council gave permission for 1420 new affordable homes in 2011-12.

Among the developments approved were 145 partially constructed affordable homes in Salamander Place and the first affordable homes in Morningside since the 1930s, in 
Pitsligo Road.
