Who We Were and Are
Whiteinch & Scotstoun Housing Association Ltd. is a Charity Registered in Scotland, registered with the Financial Conduct Authority and the Scottish Housing Regulator, and controlled by a Committee of Management which includes local tenants and home owners.
The Association had its origins in two local community groups: the Whiteinch Housing Action Group and Scotfore. The former was established in 1975 with the express aim of 'retention of the community' in the face of demolition of houses and shops brought about by the Clyde Tunnel and the clearance policy of that time. The latter organisation (Scotfore) was set up round about the same time to coordinate a large environmental improvement project in Scotstoun. These two bodies formed the basis of the original membership of the Housing Association which was formally constituted late in 1977.
Achievements and Quality
Our first Housing Action Areas were declared in 1978 and steady progress has been made thereafter. Following the transfer of the former Whiteinch Glasgow Housing Association stock in June 2011, and our development in Fore Street we now have just over 1300 properties for rent.
Through our subsidiary company, WS Property Management Limited we are also responsible for delivering a factoring service to around 600 owners of domestic and commercial properties in the area.
The quality of the product has always been important to the Association and to the residents - and it is quality which has been recognised by others. The Association has collected numerous architectural design awards - from the Saltire Society, the Scottish Civic Trust, Glasgow Institute of Architects, RIBA and RIAS.
