Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 9 May 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what information it has regarding how many tenement buildings have been demolished as a result of falling into disrepair in each year since 2007.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 18 May 2017

Information on the number of tenement buildings that have been demolished as a result of falling in to disrepair is not held centrally by the Scottish Government.

Estimates of the total number of demolitions in Scotland are published each year by the Scottish Government in Housing Statistics for Scotland web tables, available at: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Housing-Regeneration/HSfS/ConDem.

The Scottish Housing Regulator collects information through the Social Housing Charter Data on the number of social sector properties demolished as a direct result of the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS), which is available here: https://www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk/find-and-compare-landlords/statistical-information
