The Housing Investment Team

The overall objective of the Housing Investment team is to maintain the council's housing stock in the best possible condition and to ensure that every household in our area has access to a good quality and affordable home that meets their needs.

The work of the Housing Investment team is to project manage key upgrade and improvement contracts to ensure that the council meets the Governments Scottish Housing Quality Standard. (The SHQS is a standard that all Scottish Local Authorities and Registered Social Landlords were to achieve by this date). This standard has been met and we continue to sustain and improve the council's position in terms of SHQS quality standard.

The Housing Investment team also manages key housing asset and stock information and carries out stock condition surveys in preparation for future capital programme planning.

These functions combine to focus on actions relating to the successful achievement of four council priority outcomes. These are:

  • Our communities are more cohesive and inclusive
  • Our communities are safer
  • The environment is protected and enhanced for all
  • The Council is effective, efficient and recognised for excellence
