WLHP improvements are helping tenants feel proud of their homes
West Lothian Housing Partnership invest in tenants’ futures
Tenants say West Lothian Housing Partnership’s (WLHP) home improvements are making them feel proud of where they live.
WLHP, part of Wheatley Group, is well under way on its £1.3 million programme of modernising tenants’ homes. The partnership has just installed new kitchens in tenants’ homes in Blackburn, Boghall and Livingston.
The improvements are part of WLHP’s five-year strategy – called ‘Investing in Our Futures’ – which will see more done than ever before for tenants and communities.
Tenant Tracey Meechan, from Blackburn, is delighted with her new kitchen installed at the end of last year.
Tracey, 36, who lives with husband Paul and 10-year-old son Lucas, said:
“The new kitchen is lovely. It’s made a big difference. The old kitchen had seen better days, but this is much nicer.
“I got to choose the worktops, colour scheme and the flooring. It looks good and I’m so proud I can show it to anyone.
“It’s nice to see WLHP investing in their homes like this.
“You want to be proud of your home.”
WLHP Director Rebecca Wilson said:
“The next five years will see WLHP do more than we’ve ever done before to modernise our tenants’ homes.
“It’s an exciting time.”
Next month, WLHP will start replacing boilers in its homes in Craigshill, Livingston and Blackburn.
