Housing Investment Taskforce


In April 2024 the Scottish Government created a Housing Investment Taskforce.  

The Housing Investment Taskforce will, by March 2025, identify actions that will unlock both existing and new commitments to investment in housing by bringing together key interests of investors and investees.  

 The remit of the Taskforce is to:  

  • build investor confidence and attract further mobile capital investment into housing 
  • unlock existing financial commitments 
  • encourage and promote new delivery partnerships 
  • identify ways to shift the balance of investment in affordable housing to increase private funding, including from relevant comparator markets and jurisdictions  

The Taskforce will provide a final report by end of March 2025. The group is expected to meet formally around every two months.
