£10.4 million homes investment

DUMFRIES and Galloway’s largest social landlord invested £10.44 million improving homes across the region in the last financial year.

Hundreds of homes benefited from the investment, which saw a range of upgrades including the installation of innovative heating systems, replacement windows and new kitchens.

A total of £7.4m was spent on net zero improvements to 250 homes locally to help with energy bills, with £490k spent on new heating systems in a further 52 homes.

Investment in new windows for 169 of the region’s homes totalled £1.1m, with £83k spent on new kitchens in ten homes.

Frank McCafferty, from Wheatley Group, said: “This investment in housing across Dumfries and Galloway is helping make homes warmer, safer and more comfortable for thousands of families in every part of the region.

“Wheatley is committed to ensuring all our homes and communities remain great places to live and this investment forms part of our extensive programme of further refurbishment in our homes and new investment in neighbourhoods over the coming months and years.”
