Outcome 4 Quality of Housing and Outcome 5 Repairs, Maintenance and Improvement
We want all our tenants to live in a home that is warm, safe and in good condition.
This is supported by the Scottish Social Housing Charter which requires us to show how well our homes meet national quality standards and good standards of service and choice.
The improvement in our performance over the five years we have been reporting on the Scottish Social Housing Charter is demonstrated in the table below. There are significant improvements showing in the satisfaction levels as well as repairs performance, and most areas performing well against the Scottish Local Authority average.
The percentage of stock meeting the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS) has risen to 97.9% in 2018/19. We will continue to engage with tenants and utilise void periods and capital programme works to gain access to properties. The aim is to ensure that all our properties are fully complaint with the SHQS.
