Dumfries and Galloway Council
Dumfries and Galloway Council’s housing stock was transferred to Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP) back in 2003. The council no longer owns or manages social housing, but it still has statutory responsibilities as the strategic housing authority for Dumfries and Galloway.
Dumfries and Galloway Council, alongside the four partner registered social landlords, has a key role to play in the development and implementation of Homes4D&G. You can find out more about the council’s responsibilities for strategic housing here.
