We have nearly 600 homes for rent in the area and each year between 30 and 40 of these become available for re-let. The location of our housing stock can be seen here.

We also have some newly built properties to let each year – depending on our development programme.

We aim to:

  • Give priority to people in housing need
  • Help prevent rural homelessness and deal with it when it arises
  • Make the best use of the housing available
  • Help to sustain and support the rural communities we work in

Local Lettings Initiatives

The Association will from time to time make use of Local Lettings Initiatives (LLI), to help to sustain and support the rural communities we work in. The rural Stirling area faces severe housing pressures, with significant local housing need and a shortage of affordable housing. When we build new homes we have often applied an LLI for the first lets to give added priority to those in housing need who have a particular need to live in the area.
Where we are applying a LLI at any time we will publicise the details to all applicants and on this website.

We have an ongoing LLI for our homes in the remote settlement of Tyndrum. This is aimed at helping community sustainability. A copy can be viewed here.
