This year’s Awards were presented by Derek Mackay, Minister for Local Government and Planning, who said:

“The Scottish Government’s support for the Saltire Society’s Housing Design Awards recognises their long-standing importance in helping to raise the quality of Scotland’s built environment.

 “As well as the Housing Design awards, Scottish Ministers support the Society’s Innovation Award, which recognises many kinds of innovation, including the importance of pursuing new technologies and construction methods to minimise life-cycle costs and energy use – consistent with this Government’s ultimate aim for new homes to meet the highest sustainability standards.

 “The Saltire Society recognises that people don’t just need great housing – they need great housing that is part of a great place.  And that is why I want to ensure that our planning policies reflect our ambition to create great places that support sustainable economic growth across the country, as outlined in the newly published Scottish Planning Policy.”
