The National and Local Housing Policy Context​

Housing to 2040: National Strategy

In March 2021, the Scottish Government set out the first ever Long-term National Housing Strategy (LNHS), which set out a clear vision for housing and a supporting route map.  This route map includes four key elements:

  1. More homes at the heart of great places.
  2. Affordability and choice.
  3. Affordable warmth and zero emissions homes.
  4. Improving the quality of all homes.

The Local Housing Strategy (LHS) sets out the strategic approach of the Council and its partners in delivering high quality housing and housing-related services across all tenures to meet identified need across Renfrewshire. The development of the LHS is undertaken in consultation with key partners and stakeholders with local communities, housing associations and Renfrewshire's Health and Social Care Partnership all actively involved in the process and reviewed annually.​

The strategic priorities outlined in the LHS ensure provision and access to a home as well as preventing and addressing homelessness. With appropriate structures in place to deliver the right support for people, be that through physical assets or having the right people in place to deliver support within our communities, we can support those at risk of homelessness and enable people to live at home for longer as their needs change. 

The list below shows some of the national policy and local policy context drivers which influence the development of the LHS.
