While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested. The reasons why we don't have this are explained below. 

There are some types of affordable housing projects which deliver affordable housing but which are not supported with funding provided by the Scottish Government Affordable Housing Supply Programme. The Scottish Government does not hold specific details of these. You may wish to contact Midlothian Council on 0131 270 7500 or City of Edinburgh Council at for further information about these types of affordable housing.

Where a project is identified as completing before 01 July 2022, this is an estimated completion date which can vary depending on progress on site.
