We are tenants and owner-occupiers with homes in the GHA flats at Dougrie Place, Castlemilk. The windows in our blocks do not close and seal, meaning our homes are cold, damp, mouldy, and not fit for purpose. GHA started the installation of new windows before the pandemic, but their story on when the project will be finished changes week by week. So, we have put a Freedom of Information request in, asking for GHA to make themselves accountable and supply the full details of the project, and tell us when we can expect to have dry, warm, mould-free homes again.
But this won't be enough to move GHA, we need to build collective power to secure these improvements. So, if you, your friends or family also live in the Dougrie Place flats, or if you are a GHA tenant elsewhere in Castlemilk and have similar problems, please sign-up below and either one of the Dougrie Place team, or a union organiser will be in touch.
