Rent Consultation and Plans for Home Improvements

Please note that our rent consultation will end this Friday 10th February.  

The proposed 7% increase would allow us to invest £3.05 M in improvements to tenants homes in 2023/24 and in particular to install new, more energy efficient gas boilers in 275 homes.  This is stage one in a plan to replace 650 boilers in the next 3 years thereby benefitting over a quarter of all tenant households.  Replacement boilers will help tenants keep fuel bills under control.   

For more details on the proposals and how to respond please see our information leaflet here.

Heating Breakdowns

We are continuing to receive a high volume of calls for heating breakdowns and working through these as quickly as we can. Our heating contractor has received around 3,000 breakdown calls each day this week, a significant increase from the average 500 per day and mostly linked to the consistent freezing temperatures. Please continue to report any issues with your heating and we will log these and have our engineer attend as soon as they can. We can also provide temporary heaters and bottled water where required as a temporary measure until your heating is restored. Thank you for your patience.

REPAIRS… your call is important to us

During this cold snap our heating engineers are extremely busy and have had some issues with their phone lines. If you have a heating fault, please continue to call and we will have someone attend as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience.

Help during the cost of living crisis

The cost of living crisis presents an ongoing challenge for everyone, and you may be finding it difficult to make ends meet. As part of its response to this situation, the Scottish Government launched a new website costofliving.campaign.gov.scot, bringing information on support, grants, benefits and advice into one place to help you find what support you may be entitled to.
