The Scottish Government website provides guidance on how to self-isolate effectively.
Everyone who develops symptoms of COVID-19 – a new, continuous cough; fever or loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste – should isolate straight away and arrange a test. People who live in the same household as a person with symptoms should also isolate straight away.
Self-isolation means you should remain at home and shouldn’t go to work, school, public areas or use public transport. You shouldn’t go out to buy food or other essentials. You must stay at home.
If you live in a property with common areas, you must not access them while isolating. This includes closes, gardens and bin shelters and is vital for the protection of others. Deliveries of food and other essentials should be made to your own door rather than the external close door.
The National Assistance Helpline is available for people staying at home to stop the spread of coronavirus who cannot otherwise get the help they need. If you need it, you can call the National Assistance Helpline on 0800 111 4000, or contact via textphone on 0800 111 4114.
We have created a handy guide with with useful contact details of help and support during this crisis, please see here for more information.
PHA planning application to transform vacant office block at Anniesland Cross
Partick Housing Association (PHA) has submitted a planning application to transform a vacant office block on Great Western Road.
Working in partnership with MAST Architects, Glasgow City Council and others, PHA’s proposals include converting the upper floors of the four-storey office building at Anniesland Cross. This will provide 17 affordable new homes in the heart of Anniesland, comprising 11 one-bedroom flats and 6 two-bedroom flats for social rent.
This office building has been empty for a number of years, in an area surrounded by existing commercial and residential properties. The location offers excellent access to local shops, services, amenities and public transport.
Partick HA Chief Executive, Stewart MacKenzie said: “At Partick Housing Association, we’re committed to a programme of providing more high quality and affordable homes which are much-needed within Glasgow’s West End. We’re delighted to be working with partners in Anniesland, bringing this building back to life and meeting local housing needs.”
Mansfield Gate at the former St Peter’s Primary School
We are finalising the appointment of a new contractor to complete our new development at Mansfield Gate, on the site of the former St Peters Primary School.
This eagerly awaited project has unfortunately been affected by some challenges over recent months. This has been frustrating for PHA’s Board, staff, customers and neighbours. The project, like other construction work across the country, has been delayed by restrictions due to Covid19. We have also had to respond to the original contractor going into administration and having to make alternative arrangements.
At the start of October we will provide an update with news on the appointed contractor, programme of works and expected completion dates. We appreciate everyone’s patience during these uncertain times and in due course we look forward to welcoming new tenants to these great new affordable homes within the heart of Partick.
