This year Whiteburn is Homes for Scotland SME Homebuilder of the Year.

We are delighted to see Homes for Scotland, our industry’s representative body,  highlighting the importance of SME home builders in a new report which, as well as confirming the sector’s importance in rural and remote settings, also demonstrates the key role that it has to play in unlocking brownfield sites in urban locations.

Alarmingly, however, the data also reveals significant reductions in terms of SME market share and the number of companies which have been dissolved has dramatically increased.

At Whiteburn we believe SMEs are tremendously important to the diversity of new home delivery across Scotland. Our Managing Director Eve McCurrich is calling for change;  “As demonstrated by the research, the decline in the number of SMEs is stark evidence of the loss of local house builders across Scotland. A buoyant SME culture would not only see the creation of new businesses and new jobs, but importantly, it would provide new homes. These benefits would all positively contribute to their local economies. I urge policy makers to take note of these findings, listen to what is needed to remove barriers, and help support the SME sector to flourish in Scotland, reaping these benefits for all. If politicians and local authorities are genuinely serious about addressing the housing emergency, then this report is an essential read for them.”
