Lochfield Park housing allocations operates under the Greater Easterhouse Common Housing Register, through which a common allocations policy is shared amongst 4 participating landlords in the Greater Easterhouse area including Calvay Housing Association, Esthall Park and Gardeen Housing Association Ltd.

Who Can Apply For Housing?

Any person who is sixteen years or more may apply to the housing register. This is not, however, an automatic right to receive offers of housing.

We provide application forms at our offices and online. In line with equality commitments, this form can be made available in different languages and in alternative formats. On request, we can assist applicants to complete their application forms.

 In addition, applications can be made by referrals by agencies that have an agreement with any of the aforementioned landlords. Examples being Glasgow City Council Homeless Service (also known as a section 5 homeless referral) and GENR8.

Admission to the Housing Register

In order to be admitted to the register, we ask applicants to complete an application form. This application covers, Calvey Housing Association, Easthall Park Housing Co-Operative, Gardeen Housing Association and Lochfield Park Housing Association.

An application from can be attained by contacting any of the offices participating in this policy.;

  • In person
  • By phone
  • By post
  • Via website.

Information and Processing Applications

We process personal information provided on the application form in line with legal provisions. Accordingly, we only share information with other agencies if we have applicants consent, or if permitted by legislation. We may ask for references from any landlord or mortgage lender to confirm housing and tenancy details. We request applicants’ consent to do this on the application form.

 We check application details before making offers. This is good practice to ensure that information is recorded accurately so that offers are appropriate. For instance, we may telephone applicants to confirm details are as recorded on their application form.

 We may also carry out home visits to confirm application details. This is of particular importance if no references are available confirming household details. For example, at the home visit, application details may have changed and an offer may no longer be appropriate.

 If information held is inaccurate, the application details are amended accordingly. This might result in an offer not being made, or withdrawn.

 If an applicant is re-housed based on false information that an applicant has made knowingly, we are entitled to take legal action to recover the tenancy.

Applicants are responsible for advising us of any changes to their housing circumstances. They are advised of this requirement on the application form.

Housing Need – A Group Plus Points System

The Greater Easterhouse Common Housing Register operates a Group Plus Points System based on Housing Need. Under this system, upon submitting a complete application form, you are “grouped” according to your highest need and awarded points for all housing needs that you have. Your application is then placed on our common register to form a Waiting List.

The Greater Easterhouse Common Housing Register works to 8 groups covering the main needs portrayed in housing law and good practise guidance. These groups listed in order of priority are as follows;

  • Group 1- Homeless
  • Group 2- Urgent Needs
  • Group 3- Overcrowded
  • Group 4- Unsatisfactory Housing
  • Group 5- Transfers/ Under-occupation
  • Group 6- General Needs
  • Group 7- Care & Support
  • Group 8- Aspirational

Group 3 and 5 have sub-groups.

Lochfield Park works with Glasgow City Council to assist the Council in meeting statutory duties in the respect of homelessness.
