Joint Housing Policy and Delivery Group

Role of the group

The Joint Housing Policy and Delivery Group (formerly HPAG) brings together stakeholders from across the housing sector.

Working with Scottish Government officials, the group's remit is to ensure that actions in the five-year Joint Housing Delivery Plan for Scotland are taken forward. The plan was published on 3 June 2015.

The JHPDG is committed to producing an annual progress report.

The latest report covers the period 2016-17, and includes reflections from the co-chairs of the plenary group and the chairs of the subgroups, as well as case studies which illustrate what can be achieved by the housing sector through co-production and a willingness to learn from each other.

This is best printed as a colour booklet (as A3 folded) and some pages (2, 23-24) are intentionally blank to facilitate this.
