Date lodged: 14 November 2017
To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish the housing allocation guidelines.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 22 November 2017
On 4 November 2016, the Scottish Government published on its website a final draft of the statutory guidance on the social housing allocations provisions in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014. This can be found at: https://beta.gov.scot/policies/social-housing/ and forms part of a package of guidance on the social housing provisions in the 2014 Act published between November 2016 and November 2017. The statutory guidance on the social housing allocations provisions will be published formally once the commencement order for the provisions that it covers comes into force. This is expected to be in spring 2018.
