Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP)
Strategic Housing Investment Plans have been prepared by local authorities since 2007. Each year we develop a SHIP, in partnership with local housing associations and the Scottish Government. This sets out how investment in affordable housing will be directed over the next 5 years to achieve the outcomes relating to affordable housing detailed in the Local Housing Strategy. The SHIP's supporting tables includes our Strategic Local Programme which is updated in accordance with progress on the delivery of the programme, and changes in funding availability. Our preference for delivery is housing for affordable rent, such as Council or housing association homes, but may include commuted sums from developers in some circumstances.
We have defined what we mean by affordable housing.
