Legislation on Schedule to Allow ONS Decision on 19 September

The Local Government and Communities Committee of the Scottish parliament has approved the final Regulations necessary to enact the Housing (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 2018.    The regulations now go before a plenary vote in Parliament on the evening of 18 September and, if approved (which is likely following the Committee's recommendation), the Minister will then sign the instrument immediately afterwards bringing the Act officially in force.

SFHA Chairs' Forum

At our Chairs’ Conference in January, we highlighted that we would be looking to put together an SFHA Chairs’ Forum. This group would act as a sounding board on all issues of interest and concern to Chairs for the mutual benefit of Chairs themselves and SFHA. Whilst most communication is likely to be electronic (depending on preferences),  we will also bring together a meeting of the group, potentially 6 months or so after the annual Chairs’ Conference. We are aiming to have an initial meeting in the Autumn – depending on demand – in order to provide an extra opportunity for members to network and discuss key issues prior to the SFHA Chairs’ Conference in January.
