This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)Every local authority landlord and registered social landlord must, by such time as the Scottish Ministers may direct, prepare a strategy (a “tenant participation strategy”) for promoting the participation of tenants under a Scottish secure tenancy or a short Scottish secure tenancy in the formulation by the landlord of proposals in relation to the management of housing accommodation and the provision of related services by it, so far as such proposals are likely to affect such tenants.

(2)Such a strategy must include, in particular—

(a)provision as to—

(i)the arrangements for obtaining and taking account of the views of registered tenant organisations and tenants as to the matters on which the landlord should make proposals of the type referred to in subsection (1) and the nature and content of such proposals,

(ii)notifying registered tenant organisations and tenants of the matters on which the landlord expects to be making such proposals, and

(iii)ation to be provided to registered tenant organisations and tenants about such proposals and their likely effect, and

(b)an assessment of the resources (including financial and other assistance to bodies comprised of or representing tenants) required, and a statement of the resources proposed, to give effect to the strategy.

(3)Every local authority landlord and registered social landlord must maintain a register of tenant organisations and keep it open for public inspection at all reasonable times.

(4)The Scottish Ministers may by order make provision as to—

(a)the criteria to be satisfied by a body seeking registration in the register or removal from the register,

(b)the procedure to be followed in relation to applications for registration and removal from the register.

(5)A body which is aggrieved by a decision of a landlord—

(a)not to register it in the register, or

(b)to remove or not to remove it from the register,

may appeal against the decision to the Scottish Ministers, who may confirm or reverse the decision.

(6)In this Act, “registered tenant organisation”, in relation to a landlord, means a body for the time being registered in the register of tenant organisations maintained by the landlord.
