Members will be absolutely sick to the back teeth of me constantly talking about housing. It is absolutely essential that the bill moves us forward with our affordable housing delivery targets, whether in Ms Maguire’s patch in Ayrshire or other parts of the country. Everywhere that I go, people say that they need more housing, so we need to get on with the job of providing warm, affordable homes for people around Scotland. The bill will allow that to happen and there will be areas that can be zoned for housing with permission granted up front. We must also ensure that we get the infrastructure and investment right as we build those homes.
