West Dunbartonshire Tenants & Residents Organisation (WDTRO)

Who they are – the WDTRO is the independent, umbrella group that brings together the activities of all Tenant & Resident Associations in the West Dunbartonshire area.

They work together to make sure they have as much influence as possible over decisions taken about Council houses and services. 

The main aims of the WDTRO are:

  • To assist and encourage the setting up of new Tenants and Residents Associations throughout West Dunbartonshire;
  • To assist and co-ordinate the efforts of member Associations to achieve common aims;
  • To provide advice and assistance, where possible, to any member Association in relation to any problems or difficulties they encounter
  • To liaise and participate with West Dunbartonshire Council and other agencies in pursuit of tenants and residents interests;

Meetings - they have been meeting via zoom when Covid levels are high but when having face to face meetings , they meet on the second Thursday of each month at 1:30pm and alternate between the community flat at Overtoun Court, Dalmuir  or in the community flat at 2/1 McGregor Walk, Tullichewan – transport can be provided.

They also have joint WDC / WDTRO Liaison meetings every 2 months where they can raise issues directly with the Housing Convenor and housing managers.

They can be contacted through their secretary, Harry McCormack at harrymccormack.wdtro@gmail.com or contact / follow them on Facebook - @WestDunbartonshireTRO
