This report looks into the sustainable housing options available in Scotland, UK. Whilst the financial climate is restricting overall investment in affordable housing, mixed tenure developments now account for a greater proportion of the affordable housing investment programme than has ever been the case previously. CIH Scotland has carried out a short piece of research into the practical challenges of developing and then managing mixed tenure developments in Scotland. A survey was sent out to local authorities and housing associations across Scotland in an attempt to gather information on some of the barriers or challenges associated with mixed tenure developments and how organisations have sought to overcome these. A developer perspective was also sought.
