Building new homes
Wheatley has been acclaimed as the UK’s biggest developer of social rented homes by industry-leading publication Inside Housing.
Increasing the supply of quality, affordable homes which meet the needs and aspirations of our communities is a key focus for Wheatley.
There is a constant need for new affordable housing in all of our communities across Scotland, with demands for our Registered Social Landlords’ (RSLs) homes significantly outstripping the supply we have available.
That is why we are determined to use our size and scale to widen the housing options available to our customers. From April 2015 to the end of March 2016, Wheatley built nearly 1000 new homes – with 668 for social rent.
Over the past five years, Wheatley Group and our subsidiaries have built nearly 4300 homes – with thousands of more homes in the pipeline.
Our social and mid-market rent housing is being delivered by our RSLs, principally in Glasgow, West Dunbartonshire, West Lothian and Edinburgh where we will have strategic agreements with several local authorities.
We are also increasing our portfolio of mid-market and full market homes which are managed by our commercial subsidiary Lowther Homes.
