New online letting service launched for housing applicants in Dumfries and Galloway

A new website offering housing advice and available properties for let in D&G has launched today.

The new site by social housing alliance Homes4D&G will provide in-depth housing information and advice for social housing applicants looking to let a new home.

Homes4D&G is a common housing partnership in Dumfries and Galloway and is made up of four housing associations. The partners are Wheatley Homes South, Cunninghame Housing Association, Riverside Housing and Home Group.

The easy-to-use website launched today, 26 April, and will support applicants to make the right choices about their housing needs.

Those who use the new service will get tailored advice about their housing, see much more information about the current homes available, be able to apply for housing, note interest and check on the progress of an application.

The changes to this service have been designed to be fair to people in most need of social housing, including families in need.

Current Homes4D&G applicants were lettered and asked to re-submit their housing application on the new system in the lead up to the launch of the new website.

Homes4D&G applicants who received a letter but are not sure what they need to do, can attend one of several drop-in sessions run by Wheatley Homes South staff.

The drop-in sessions are open to current applicants and tenants of all four housing associations that form Homes4D&G who received a letter asking them to re-submit their housing application.

The next drop-in sessions are:

  • Wednesday 26 April (10am – 4pm) – 55 Friars Vennel, Dumfries, DG1 2RQ
