This paper covers housing proposals across ten issues for consideration by the new Scottish Government after the election in May. These are put in context and related to research, policy and practice evidence in the main paper. Here we simply list the proposals by issue (edited from the main text). One general issue is that several of the policies proposed in the Housing to 2040 route map as well as also suggested here (end to end evidence, retrofit, existing housing stock, private renting, land and placemaking, design value, and homelessness prevention) require sustained investment in enforcement resource and capacity, often at local government level. This cannot be ducked – effective policy needs to be implemented and enforced, and to do that there needs to be a sustained commitment to deliver it on a longer-term resilient basis.
