At HHP’s Board meeting on Wednesday 28th June 2017 the Board welcomed the Scottish Government’s announcement of additional resources for affordable housing in the Outer Hebrides. The total grant available to the Comhairle over the next four years is just under £31million which will result in just over £47 million of investment on affordable housing.
The announcement represents a substantial increase in funding and a tremendous opportunity for the islands. Iain Macmillan the Chair of the Board said “We welcome the additional funds being made available to the Comhairle and look forward to working together to deliver the enhanced new build programme throughout the islands. Last night the Board agreed to strengthen the Partnership’s development resources by approving a new Development Manager post. This post will supplement the development services currently being provided by TIG and will be advertised shortly”
