Housing consultations and events

Tenant and customer feedback helps us to shape future policy and strategy. 

When we are consulting with tenants, we will:

  • give adequate time to allow for meaningful consultation and discussion
  • provide information at the earliest stage to allow full understanding of any proposals
  • give notice of how and when decisions will be taken.

Local Housing Strategy Forum

The forum discusses local housing challenges and contributes to the development of the Local Housing Strategy.

Topics can cover:

  • regeneration
  • homelessness
  • special needs housing
  • pressured area status
  • affordable and rural housing need.

To attend, please contact the Development and Strategy Team.

Reporting a significant performance failure

The Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) can consider issues raised about 'significant performance failures', defined by the SHR as something a landlord does, or fails to do, that puts the interests of its tenants at risk, and which the landlord has not resolved. This is something that is a systematic problem that does, or could, affect all of a landlord's tenants. If a problem like this affects you, report it to us. If you have told us and we haven't resolved it, report it to the SHR, telephone 0141 2425642, email shr@scottishhousingregulator.gsi.gov.uk.
