Welcome to David Kinloch

West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative is delighted to welcome David Kinloch our new Property Maintenance Officer. David is replacing Gavin Glaister who left WWHC in November 2015.

David was interviewed by Committee members Susan Anderson (chair) Anne Anderson (vice chair) and Muriel Alcorn (treasurer) who were unanimous in their choice of David as the outstanding candidate in a highly competitive field.

David brings a tremendous amount of experience to the WWHC property team from his previous career in Property Managemen, with a range of organisations. We are sure David will prove to be a great asset to WWHC and we are sure David will further strengthen the Property team of Grant, Jeanette, Kathleen, Kirstie and Samantha.

District Heating Charges 2016/2017

The Management Committee have agreed to freeze all heat charges for 2016/17, in other words there will be no increase from 1st April 2016 until 31st March 2017, when charges will be reviewed again. This means that West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative has imposed no price increases for charges to tenants from July 2014 to 31st March 2017.

The Co-operative provides all services on a not for profit basis. The heat charges are calculated to cover the costs of making the supply and to ensure that there are sufficient funds available to carry out necessary maintenance, cyclical repairs and replacement.

The Co-operative’s Management Committee, who decide the charge levels, all of whom are WWHC tenants themselves, are aware of the financial and economic difficulties many of our tenants face currently.

If you have any questions about the heating system, particularly with regard to using the system economically, please contact the Property Team at the office.
