Alert Board Moderator about this Post! 
2.3 In accordance with the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001, ... children aged 5 years or over of different sex from other children of any age;. no more than two persons of any age should occupy one bedroom; and ... Where an applicant believes that a bedroom is insufficient in size to allow two persons to share

and most Councils have

For the purposes of determining overcrowding, the Council considers that separate bedrooms are required for:

husband/wife or similar partnerships;
each person aged 16 years or over;
children aged 5 years or over of different sex from other children of any age;
no more than two persons of any age should occupy one bedroom; and
children of the same sex where there is an age difference of 5 years or more between the elder and the younger child.
Applicants’ current accommodation will be assessed on the above basis and points awarded, where there is a bedroom deficiency. For each bedroom for which the applicant’s current accommodation is deficient, 100 points will be awarded.

Where an applicant believes that a bedroom is insufficient in size to allow two persons to share, an applicant may request that a visit is made to assess whether additional overcrowding points should be considered.

In cases where an additional bedroom need arises from pregnancy, overcrowding points will be added to the application from the date of confirmation of the pregnancy. However, in allocating properties, preference will be given to instances where overcrowding currently occurs, rather than to instances of potential overcrowding.

Where an additional bedroom is required for frequent and regular overnight access to children, a total of 50 points will be awarded per bedroom deficiency. Proof of contact arrangements must be provided from the Court or solicitor or Social Worker or the parent with whom the children usually reside.
