DGHP is about more than new houses – we transform homes and change lives. Our aim is to provide the best affordables homes in Scotland.
Our tenants benefit from a fast repairs service, tailored by tenant feedback and our investment programme continues to go from strength to strength throughout Dumfries and Galloway.
We continue to work to make sure every tenant has a modern kitchen and bathroom, full central heating, double glazing, insulated external doors and electric wired smoke alarms. So far we have installed more than 9000 kitchens, 4000 bathrooms and 9000 hard wired smoke alarms.
Our new build programme is steadily progressing across the region, with developments in Dumfries and Lochmaben both currently underway. We now have tenants and owners living in brand new homes in regenerated areas of north west Dumfries and also in Stranraer.
Over the past several years, we have also completed developments in Lockerbie, Sanquhar, Dumfries and Stranraer, providing families across the region with affordable new homes.
One of our main aims is to have our tenants at the core of everything we do. Tenants are well represented on our Board, along with our Independent members who are all passionate about getting the best for people living in DGHP properties.
We operate a governance structure that enables our tenants to have a valued input into the ownership and management of their homes. Our tenants also make up our four District Management Committees (DMCs), which are full sub-committees of our Board. This helps keep local decisions at a local level.
