Wigtown Community Owned Housing
Wigtown & Bladnoch Community Initiative (WBCI) has bought the former Bank of Scotland building at 21 North Main Street, and are now developing it to offer an affordable 3 bedroom home, and an affordable 1 bedroom fully accessible home, which are expected to be available to rent from early 2021.
At this stage we are seeking Expressions of Interest from people who might like to be considered to rent one of the homes. If you register now, a full Application Pack will be sent to you nearer the time of the properties becoming available for let.
The homes in the former Bank of Scotland will be offered for affordable let in line with an allocations policy that has been developed for the properties. The Allocations Policy and criteria for applications will be provided as part of the application pack, but it should be noted that preference is likely to be given to applicants who are able to meet one or more of the following criteria:
The applicant has a clearly established connection (residential, family or workplace) with the Royal Burgh of Wigtown & District Community Council area or those that surround Wigtown & Bladnoch;
The applicant is in clear need of help in securing an affordable and suitable house in order to be able to meet their housing needs and to live in and contribute positively to the well-being of the community of Wigtown & Bladnoch and the surrounding area.
Submitting this form will not commit you to any further action. Your information will be held confidentially and in line with current data protection legislation, and will only be used to contact you in relation to these homes.
You can register your interest in one of the properties by downloading, completing and returning the Register of Interest available HERE
