SNP MSP Stuart McMillan has welcomed new figures that show 573 new build homes were completed in Inverclyde last year.
The latest statistics from the Scottish Government show that over 9,300 affordable homes were delivered in 2019 across the country, an increase of more than 25% since 2016.
Meanwhile, the number of homes for social rent in Inverclyde hit 542 last year.
Welcoming the news, Stuart said:
“Having a home to call your own really matters – that’s why the SNP Government has made the delivery of thousands of new affordable homes a priority.
“Just last year alone, we’ve seen 573 new homes completed in Inverclyde, 542 of which are for social rent.
“On top of our commitment to deliver 50,000 affordable homes, we’re helping first-time buyers here in Inverclyde get on the property ladder by lending them a chunk of their deposit.
“I’m proud that this SNP Government is getting on with the day-job, and is quite literally, building for the future of Scotland.”
