A key element of delivering Glasgow's Housing Strategy is the introduction of a Common Housing Register (CHR) for Glasgow.
A CHR is a single housing list for a local authority area, maintained (on a database) on behalf of social housing providers. It enables applicants to complete one, common application form to apply for multiple Housing Associations, where currently, applicants must fill in a number of forms.
A Partnership made up of Glasgow City Council and the below listed Housing Associations and Cooperatives have been working to deliver the Glasgow Housing Register. This pilot CHR will operate in the Northwest of Glasgow only for a period of two years, the evaluation of which will assist in the development of a model for a citywide roll out.
