Housing and Public Policy in Post Devolution Scotland



Politically, the last five years have been exciting times in Scotland. As part of the
devolution settlement enshrined in the Scotland Act 1998, a Scottish Parliament
was established in Edinburgh for the first time since 1707. The first parliamentary
elections were held in May 1999 and the Parliament was formally opened by the
Queen on 1st July that year. Housing was expressly included among the various areas of responsibility devolved to Edinburgh and this book seeks to explore the changes taking place in
Scottish housing in the wake of devolution. Although the Chartered Institute of
Housing had previously published a book on Scottish housing policy (Currie and
Murie, 1996), the speed of political and policy change in the last seven years have
rendered it increasingly out of date.
