Date lodged: 19 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason its data regarding the Affordable Housing Supply Programme for 2016-17 records that 72% of the completed homes that were classified as "rural" were built in towns and urban areas.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 28 March 2018

Our management system for 2016-17 categorised the affordable housing supply programme projects as either ‘urban’ or ‘rural’. On realigning this information with the 6-fold classification, 368 completed homes were remote rural, 141 accessible rural and 124 in remote small towns.
