Welcoming the news, SNP MSP for Coatbridge and Chryston Fulton MacGregor said:
“Having a home to call your own really matters – that’s why the SNP Government has made the delivery of thousands of new affordable homes a priority.
“Just last year alone, we’ve seen 1232 new homes completed in North Lanarkshire, 630 of which are for social rent.
“On top of our commitment to deliver 50,000 affordable homes, we’re helping first-time buyers here in Coatbridge & Chryston get on the property ladder by lending them a chunk of their deposit.
“I’m proud that this SNP Government is getting on with the day-job, and is quite literally, building for the future of Scotland.”
