20 - Homes for Scotland's new CEO Jane Wood
Ahead of Homes for Scotland's Annual Conference 2022, Jimmy Black and Kieran Findlay speak to the organisation's new CEO Jane Wood who is just three months into her new post.
We discuss developer contributions and the recent Homes for Scotland research on the extent of affordable housing contributions by private developers, NPF4 and the availability of land, as well as the need to define modern methods of construction and whether innovation has progressed to desired levels.
The conversation moves on to the impact a potential long-term rent freeze could have on house building and the upcoming Housing Bill and we round up with a preview of the Annual Conference.
Kieran Findlay is the editor of Scottish Housing News. Jimmy Black is a former Dundee housing convener and housing justice campaigner.
