Council housing

We no longer have any council houses. Housing associations are the main providers of new and affordable social housing in Dumfries and Galloway.

All applications for social rented housing go through Homes4D&G. This is the name of the common housing register and is a partnership between:

  • Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP)
  • Loreburn Housing Association
  • Irvine Housing Association
  • Home Scotland
  • Dumfries and Galloway Council

You can submit one application to Homes4D&G which is considered by all four of the registered social landlords.

Apply for housing

You'll need to provide:

  • your contact details
  • your date of birth and National Insurance number
  • information about your current accommodation
  • reasons for applying
  • information about your personal circumstances
  • details of people living with you
  • information about your housing requirements

Next steps

You will receive a response within 10 working days.

Applications that are approved will be added to the waiting list for properties which match your requirements. Homes4D&G will let you know your position on this list.
