Scotland is experiencing a “chronic undersupply” of homes as a new poll reveals the extent of public concern on the issue.

A survey by pollsters Survation found 74 per cent of Scots agree the country is currently experiencing a housing crisis.

The poll, carried out last month on behalf of advisory firm True North, comes after Shona Robison recently announced funding for housing will be slashed in the Scottish Government budget for the year ahead.

Thousands of Scots – many of them children – are also stuck in temporary accommodation such as B&Bs due to a lack of social housing across the country.

And the Record has previously revealed how charities have warned that rough sleeping is on the rise again despite almost being eradicated during covid lockdowns – with the exploding cost of private rentals partly to blame.

The poll also found that 55 per cent of Scots believe too few new homes are currently being built north of the Border.
