Our housing is located in the Bargarran, North Barr and Park Mains areas of Erskine. We have a variety of house types – houses, flats, bungalows suitable for disabled persons, amenity housing and supported housing for older people (sheltered and extra care). A fuller description of our properties is given in our application packs.
We allocate housing by setting annual targets for each of our 5 Priority Groups (homeless, mobility, housing need, transfers and applicants with no housing need). The targets are a percentage of the overall lets in the year and show the lets we aim to give to each group.
When a property becomes available for re-let, we will first of all check if it is suitable for someone with mobility needs. This is to ensure that we make best use of our purpose built, adapted and level access properties.
Our staff aim to give applicants realistic advice about the likelihood of being re-housed based on the choices they have made. We also provide information on opportunities to find housing with other local providers.
