Section 3 – Scottish Ministers’ power to apply sections 1 and 2 to registered social landlords
16.Section 3 provides that the Scottish Ministers may make regulations to secure the participation of any registered social landlord in the preparation, review or revision of an antisocial behaviour strategy. These regulations are subject to negative resolution procedure.
17.Subsection (2) provides that these regulations may modify subsections (1), (3), (4), (6) and (8) of section 1 and subsection (1) of section 2 for the purpose of ensuring the registered social landlord is appropriately involved in the preparation, review or revision of the strategy. This may be necessary if the requirements in those subsections, which relate to the duty to prepare a strategy and the content, review and consultation requirements relating to a strategy need to be changed in light of the decision to regulate to secure the participation of a registered social landlord.
