Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 1 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether the infrastructure investment plan that was referred to in the 2016 SNP manifesto will focus on the reported 72% of pre-1919 homes that are in disrepair.

Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 9 June 2016

This plan will be developed by Historic Environment Scotland in partnership with government and the historic environment sector, in line with the strategy set out by the sector in Our Place in Time. We are currently at a very early stage of considering how a long term infrastructure investment plan might operate to the optimum benefit of Scotland’s historic environment. Funding levels will be determined in the light of developing spending plans as part of the forthcoming spending review.
