SHR: safeguarding tenants and service users’ interests to remain at heart of work

SHR publishes programme summary. 

Posted In

The Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) has published a summary of what it will do this year. 
 
Highlights of the regulator’s programme include:

  • national charter analysis and individual landlord reports in August  
  • a planned programme of engagement with 64 RSLs and 20 local authorities 
  • a major consultation on the future of regulation of social housing in Scotland.

The SHR will review its Regulatory Framework this year, including a review of Charter indicators.

The framework explains how the regulator operates its statutory powers and duties. The regulator will work closely with stakeholders on the review and formally consult later in 2018. 
 
Michael Cameron, SHR Chief Executive, said: 

“This year, we will keep tenants at the heart of our work as we engage with RSLs and local authorities. We will work closely with our stakeholders to deliver a new Regulatory Framework”
 
“We will use the review of the framework as an opportunity to reflect with our stakeholders and develop the ideas that came out of the discussion paper we published earlier this year. This is hugely important for us and for landlords, tenants, lenders and everyone with an interest in our work.”
 
The summary is available on the regulator’s website at www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk
