Background to the Transfer of Engagements

 

Bellsmyre Housing Association operated as a subsidiary of the Caledonia Housing Association Group from April 2016 until late 2020.  On 1st November 2020 Bellsmyre Housing Association officially completed a Transfer of Engagements to Caledonia Housing Association and ceased to exist as a Housing Association.  

The Transfer of Engagements took place after a successful tenant ballot where tenants voted in favour of the transfer. The ballot was the culmination of over 18 months’ of consultation with Bellsmyre tenants about the necessity of the transfer to deliver the significant investment needed in the area. 

The extensive consultation process ensured the business plan, transfer proposals and £30 million regeneration program were focused on the priorities the Bellsmyre customers and residents told us during the consultations. These included strengthening the ability to invest in the service improvement, housing stock, the regneration program and maintenance priorities that meet the needs and aspirations of tenants.

The Bellsmyre community is located in Dumbarton with over 1,000 homes now a part of Caledonia Housing Association's stock and under Caledonia Housing Association management.
