WGHC ALLOCATIONS POLICY
OPEN TENANT CONSULTATION SESSION
MONDAY 11th FEBRUARY 2019 in the WGHC OFFICE – Starts at 2 pm (expected to last from 2-3 pm)
POP ALONG AND SHARE YOUR VIEWS WITH US. ALL TENANTS AND APPLICANTS WELCOME!
WGHC is seeking the views of tenants and applicants on how it allocates empty properties. Under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014, social landlords must make changes to their Allocations Policy. The Scottish Government has recently published its guidance stating what social landlords need to do. The Act requires social landlords to consult tenants and applicants. Landlords must then publish a report on the outcome of the consultation.
This week (04.02.19) WGHC is sending out a questionnaire to all WGHC tenants, asking for their views on how WGHC allocates empty properties. In addition, WGHC is holding an OPEN TENANT CONSULTATION SESSION in the WGHC OFFICE on Friday, 11th February 2019. All tenants and applicants are invited. We are keen to hear your views.

AVAILABLE PROPERTIES Sorry, we do not have any available properties at this time. But please keep checking in as we will advertise them on this website. Details of any available properties are always given at the bottom of this page.
