Description

Hunter's Hall Housing Co-operative Ltd is a housing association providing a range of low-cost social housing to people needing somewhere to live.

The co-operative is a not-for-profit organisation formed to provide and manage affordable homes for rent.

It is a registered social landlord managing 201 houses/flats in Niddrie House. All tenants are members of the co-op and elect a management committee. Annually, in addition to the normal housing services, the co-op has started a number of Y.W. activities. This led to the establishment of the Tomorrow Youth Group.

Hunters Hall Housing Co-op provides housing and community services to 220+ tenants/members in the Niddrie House area of Edinburgh. We facilitate a range of children's and youth clubs throughout the week. We design the activity programme together with participants, and aim to create stimulating and educational experiences.

Hunters Hall Housing Co-operative will support and encourage tenants to create a safe environment, within a friendly and welcoming community.

We will provide affordable, well-maintained houses.

We will promote community ownership of our houses, and encourage the active participation of co-operative tenants and their families in the management of their houses and environment.

Hunters Hall Housing Co-operative has 201 homes in the Niddrie House area of Craigmillar in East Edinburgh. We have both houses and flats, which range in size from 1 bedroom to 4 bedrooms. Our houses are available to rent only, and we do not offer the Right to Buy to tenants.

We are a Fully Mutual Housing Co-operative, which means that only members can become tenants. If you are short-listed for housing with us, we will invite you to a membership interview, conducted by two Committee Members. This is an informal interview which covers such things as why you wish to become a member and how you would handle certain situations if you became a tenant. You will not be asked about your housing circumstances. Our Management Committee will then either accept or refuse your membership application. The membership fee is £1.00, payable only if you become a tenant.

For further information on how to become a member, please get in touch.
