Newly Built Properties
If you currently stay in, or move in to, one of our new-build properties, the Building Contractor is responsible for repairs for the first 12 months. If you have any defects, please contact Loreburn directly on 01387 321 300. Any faults which are not defects could be recharged to you, so please contact a member of the Development Team if you are unsure of repair responsibilities.
Loreburn Housing Association’s recently established Development Team comprises of the Development and Care & Repair Manager, two Development Officers, one Technical Officer and a Development Assistant. Together, they aim to nurture a professional and efficient programme that is respected by colleagues, our customers and our many partner agencies such as Dumfries & Galloway Council, the Scottish Government and NHS Dumfries & Galloway.
Over the course of the period to the end of the financial year 2019, we will embark upon an extensive new build programme that commits to delivering at least 180 new homes across Dumfries & Galloway. Our current proposals include homes designed specifically for families, young people, older people and those with particular care needs. Also included in our plan is a first for Dumfries & Galloway in the form of a foyer for young people in Stranraer, as well as our proposal to build the UK’s first Dementia Care Village in Dumfries.
With special emphasis on the need to provide for a diverse and ageing population throughout the region, we will focus our efforts on working together with the Dumfries & Galloway Council and NHS Dumfries & Galloway ‘Health & Social Care Partnership’ to deliver homes that are innovative, energy efficient and fit for purpose for many, many years to come.
It is our intention that our Development programme will enhance the economic performance of the region and develop services for young people that link to employability and accommodation. We will continue to research and progress maximising grant opportunities, our competitive tendering processes and all other development opportunities that meet with Loreburn Housing Association’s strategic objectives.
