The 20th Anniversary Brochure was a 64pp brochure commemorating the history of the HSCHT. They also organised a Conference Dinner and Event which provided a great opportunity to look back on and celebrate the last 20 years but it was also a great chance to announce some of HSCHT’s new initiatives. This included the launch of the Self Build Loan Fund and the Dr and Mrs J. Steven Faulds Fund, two new and unique funds that HSCHT are administering.
Both funds aim to encourage and aid self-build projects across Scotland.
In a quest to support and reinvigorate the Scottish self and custom build market, HSCHT have launched a new website, Scotland's Self and Custom Build Portal. The new website acts as a hub for self builders, providing them with information, advice and guidance on the self and custom build market in Scotland.
The website has several useful features including a plot finder, a build cost calculator, self build finance options, case studies, news, events and more!
The £4 million Self Build Loan Fund comes after the success of the pilot Highland Self Build Loan.
The Highlands Small Communities Housing Trust (HSCHT) are delighted to have been appointed the agents for the new fund. HSCHT were the agents for the previous pilot fund in the Highlands, which was launched in 2016. Since then HSCHT have helped 12 self-build projects through this fund, with the first few projects coming to a finish earlier this year.
