South Lanarkshire is home to just over 311,000 people and is one of the largest and most diverse areas of Scotland. The Council covers 180,000 hectares of land stretching from a few miles from the city centre of Glasgow to close to the Scottish Border.
There are four towns in South Lanarkshire with a population over 20,000 (East Kilbride, Hamilton, Rutherglen and Cambuslang) and a further 23 towns and settlements with a population over 1,000.
South Lanarkshire Council is Scotland’s fourth largest social landlord and manages approximately 24,900 homes.
We have a letting standard that each property must meet. These comply with the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS), and ensure our homes:
• are energy efficient
• have modern facilities and services
• are healthy, safe and secure
• are free from serious disrepair
• meet the tolerable standard
In 2004 the council launched a housing investment programme which has seen more than 25,250 homes benefitting from improvements over that period.
A programme of home improvements continues under the Home+ banner and has been expanded with a target to build more than 1000 new homes by 2020/21.
In addition to housing the council has a varied property portfolio and from time to time will identify properties as surplus to requirements and suitable for sale, this can include residential, commercial and other properties.
While not meeting the council’s current operational needs these properties can offer a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to live, trade or invest in our community.
