Shettleston Housing Association is pleased to announce the completion of its new mural at the gable end wall at 577 Shettleston Road. The eye-catching artwork is the result of a collaboration between the Association and third year pupils at Eastbank Academy, who worked with arts company Art Pistol to develop a theme for the mural.
The brief was to come up with an idea that would make the best use of the space available, with consideration given to its height – four storey Victorian tenement height – and its prominence at the ‘entrance’ to Shettleston. To the pupils the answer was obvious and ‘You’re having a giraffe!’ was completed over the Glasgow Fair Weekend.
Did you know that the Association has improved its target response time for urgent repairs? Following consultation with the Consultation Panel, and taking into account the views of our tenants and service users, the Management Committee approved the new target of responding to urgent repairs within four working days, instead of five working days!
All tenants, please be aware that there have been some staffing changes within the Housing Management Team. A full list of the changes has been provided below, detailing which addresses are affected by the staffing changes.
The £2.3m development of 24 high quality newbuild apartments has now been completed and is occupied by the delighted new tenants.
This has been the first Mid Market Rent development the Association has undertaken and it has demonstrated that there is an appetite for accommodation within this new sector in Shettleston.
