The Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP) is a five year rolling plan that sets out the Affordable Housing Supply Programme (AHSP).

The purpose of the SHIP is to guide the allocation of available Scottish Government investment funding to meet the affordable Housing Supply Target, as set out in the Local Housing Strategy (LHS) and its associated priorities and outcomes.

The SHIP reflects the housing policies and outcomes set out in each local authority’s LHS and LHS Outcome Action Plan. It links the strategic priorities identified in the LHS:

  • to the delivery of additional affordable housing
  • reinforces the role of the local authority as Strategic Housing Authority
  • informs Scottish Government investment decisions
  • informs the preparation of a Strategic Local Programme Agreement (SLPA) that sets out the planned programme across the local authority for the year, and
  • where required programme agreements to individual providers setting out their planned programme for the year

We aim to deliver, along with our Registered Social Landlords (RSL) partners, new affordable social rent homes for residents within East Ayrshire.

These ambitious and exciting projects build on the range of new properties that are now home to our tenants.

Five year programme
