Welcome To Pentland Housing Association Ltd

Pentland Housing Association is the leading provider of housing in Caithness and we currently manage 498 properties in the area. However, there’s so much more to our organisation than just providing good quality, affordable housing and we increasingly see part of our role in the community as being one which helps develop employment opportunities and economic growth.

However we never lose sight of our original aims as purely a housing association, and indeed we continue to strive to always provide first class service to our tenants.

To read about our performance, please click here which will take you to the Scottish Housing Regulator website, where you can see how Pentland Housing Association is performing.


Time-limited 1 year appointment

Following a strategic options review, PHA decided to seek a formal partnership with another housing association, and has entered into detailed discussions with Cairn Housing Association. If successful, partnership discussions should be completed in around 12 to 15 months. We need three new members to join our board, to support us through this process.

Whilst our offices are in Thurso, you don’t need to live in Caithness. Over the next year, board meetings will be held by video-conference, so you can beam in from your own home!

Ideally, governance experience, including entering into or overseeing formal partnership arrangements, would be especially helpful, as would financial management, business development or HR skills and experience.

But mostly we need people who are keen to join us, feel they have something to contribute to the wellbeing of our tenants and the local community, share our sense of purpose, and can give us their time and commitment for the coming year.   

For more information please click here for the application form and for the board candidate information pack please click here. Please contact Rachel MacGregor on rachel@pentlandhousing.co.uk or on 01847 807 112. 

Closure Dates

The office will close on Friday 20th March 2020 at 5pm for the foreseeable future. Please click here for the COVID 19 Newsletter Update

Please tell us what you think about proposed changes to our Mutual Exchanges Policy.  We are consulting tenants through a short online survey.  You can find it here  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MEXPHA2020

Mutual Exchanges help tenants to move by swapping their homes with other tenants.   We are proposing to update the criteria we use to make decisions.  The Highland Housing Register partners are doing this together.  Our changes are to: make better use of funding; meet housing needs and; make sure we are consistent in our decision making across Highland.

This consultation closes on Monday 21st September.2020

If you can’t do the online survey but want to give us your views, please speak to your local housing officer.
Watch out for more tenant consultations coming your way soon.

Cairn Housing Association and Pentland Housing Association are pausing partnership discussions that would have seen Pentland homes and services transferring to Cairn. At a time when social housing providers are responding to the significant challenges posed by the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, the focus of both organisations must be on ensuring essential services are provided to tenants and other customers.

Cairn and Pentland hope to resume discussions, and continue to assess the potential business case in the best interests of tenants, later in 2020
