We are doing a great deal to provide affordable housing in rural communities. This year alone, our investment in new affordable housing in rural Scotland is about £139 million, which is expected to provide more than 2,100 affordable homes. Together with planning policies that are tailored to rural development, changes to council tax discounts on second homes and significant investment in water and sewerage infrastructure, that demonstrates the strength of our commitment to Scotland's rural communities.
