BTR Forum Scotland 2019
If you have missed the conference - main topics covered by Rettie & Co. can be found on presentation slides by Dr John Boyle and Gillian McLees, Director of BTR below.
- The number of Build to Rent (BTR) homes built or in the pipeline in Scotland has now increased to over 7,200.
- The bulk of this supply is in Glasgow (nearly 4,000 homes), with around 2,000 in Edinburgh and just over 1,000 in Aberdeen.
- As well as providing much needed new homes, the sector is producing a significant economic impact, with the value of construction contracts in Glasgow alone around £0.5bn.
- There is capacity for more growth, with BTR supply less than 2% of total private rented sector households in Scotland, compared with 3% in the wider UK and close to 9% in London.
