Scottish Housing Regulator Update

The Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) has published their new Engagement Plan for Wishaw & District Housing Association (WDHA) which can be accessed here.  

This confirms that SHR will continue its Statutory Action at WDHA due to our ongoing governance challenges as we continue to need the support of a Statutory Manager and statutory appointees to work with the Management Board and staff team to ensure sound governance and to help us with all the important activity that lies ahead.

Six statutory appointees remain on the Board to work with the elected members to provide strategic leadership to WDHA.  Mags Lightbody continues as our Statutory Manager.

The SHR Plan notes that they consider that we have made 'significant' progress in implementing our proposals to transfer to Trust Housing Association (Trust) with the tenant ballot to authorise the transfer now running from 19 August 2019 closing at 5pm 16 September 2019.

Our experienced staff team will continue to provide usual high quality housing services as normal and we will keep tenants and stakeholders updated on the ballot outcome as soon as it is known. 

If you have any questions, please contact this office on 01698-377200 or by email to transfer@wishawdha.org.uk
