About the Association
Cathcart & District Housing Association is a community controlled Housing Association, and local members make up our Board of Management. We provide 596 properties for social rent in the local area and manage a further 488 properties on behalf of Owner occupiers.
CDHA was registered with Communities Scotland in April 2005 as a Charitable Housing Association (no. SCO37255). The organisation was formed in 1978 from the former Glasgow Fair Housing Association properties. The cumulative stock is 592 properties owned and managed by CDHA. In addition to our stock we manage the common areas of a further 497 properties for other owners.
The Association is also registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (no: MS1821RS) under the terms of the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. This means that it cannot distribute any profits and all surpluses are used for the benefit of the organisation. CDHA is also registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator (no: HAL 85). As a result, the Association is subject to regulation and inspection by this agency.
CDHA has been office based in the Community since 1988. The first task was to improve the quality of the stock which has been achieved through a programme of comprehensive tenemental improvements. Upon completion CDHA then embarked on a new build development at Dairsie Court (18 flats) and since then have added another new build development at Holmlea Court (10 flats). In 2010 we obtained a further 284 properties through second stage stock transfer with GHA. In August 2020, we completed the development of the former Holmlea Primary School, now known as 91 and 99 Spean Street, adding 10 new properties to our housing stock.
