Housing (Scotland) Act 2010

Performance improvement targets

43.The Charter will provide a framework for the regulator to assess and report on social landlords’ performance. Section 34 allows the regulator to set performance improvement targets for social landlords. Subsection (2) allows it to set targets for an individual landlord or a group of landlords if, for example, their performance falls below that of the sector generally. Before setting, revising or withdrawing targets that apply to social landlords, the regulator must consult Scottish Ministers and the other interested parties specified in subsection (3). The requirement to consult does not apply if the target affects only one landlord, or if the regulator considers there is an urgent need to set the performance improvement target.
