We’re keeping our service provision under continuous review, taking account of the emerging restrictions and advice. As of 19th July 2021 Scotland moved to Level 0 with guidance from the Scottish Government to:

Our current service provision is as follows:

Our Offices

  • Entry to the office is strictly by appointment only. Please call or email to arrange an appointment.
  • Majority of our staff are homeworking in line with Government advice. 
  • We anticipate ongoing disruption in our response timescales and service standards: examples include responding to postal mail, Freedom of Information requests and Formal Complaints. 
Concierge Stations
  • Our concierge stations are closed.
  • Concierge teams are focussed on day-shift duties. Priority is being given to cleaning of high-touch areas. Any changes to this service will be communicated in a timely manner.
Repairs
  • Emergency Repairs
    Our contractors continue to attend to Emergency repairs. A repair is an emergency if a delay in attending to it could represent a significant risk to health, safety or security, or could cause significant damage to property.
    To report an Emergency Repair during normal working hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm) please call 0141 331 6652.
    - To report an Emergency Repair outwith normal working hours, please call City Building on 0800 595 595. This number is freephone from landlines and mobiles.
  • Routine Repairs
    - Our contractors have resumed a routine repairs service from 26th April 2021. We anticipate that response times will be impacted initially whilst our contractors work through the backlog of outstanding works, and would appreciate your continued patience.
    - To report a Routine Repair, please call 0141 331 6650, follow instructions to leave a voicemail and we will respond to the message and instruct works, where appropriate. Alternatively, e-mail details to rservice@glasgowwestha.co.uk
  • We continue to undertake annual gas services in Tenant’s homes in line with our statutory obligations and Government guidelines. If your service is due we will make contact several weeks in advance. We request your co-operation in agreeing access arrangements, disclosing whether you have experienced any Covid-19 symptoms, and in your continued adherence to maintaining social distancing while our contractors are in your home. 
  • Gas Safety checks fall within the Scottish Government’s definition of essential works therefore, please ensure access is provided upon request. 
Environmental Services
  • There are no planned changes to the Local Authority refuse collection arrangements.
  • Routine Environmental Services, as per the Soft Landscaping schedule, are now being undertaken with the service recovery actions complete. The Close Cleaning recovery plan is complete with Caledonian Maintenance undertaking scheduled weekly/ fortnightly/ monthly cleaning.
