Ferguslie Park Housing Association has welcomed a report from the Scottish Housing Regulator acknowledging a ‘significant improvement’ in its performance. The Regulator intervened in February 2016 following an independent investigation which found a number of weaknesses and issues in the association. Since then the entire management team and board has changed, and two action plans put in place which delivered around 130 improvements to the business.Following these improvements, the Regulator ended its statutory intervention in September last year ahead of publishing its report this week.
Ferguslie Park Housing Association Chief Executive, Catrina Miller said: “The past three years have been extremely challenging for the organisation. The new management team and board have worked incredibly hard to ensure we are best placed to deliver the top-quality homes and services our tenants deserve.“We are pleased the Regulator has welcomed the significant progress which has been made and we are now well placed to properly serve the community of Ferguslie Park.”
Ferguslie Park Housing Association chair Shona McIntyre said: “The new management team and board are now able to ensure the people of Ferguslie Park get the best possible homes and services.We are pleased the Regulator recognises the huge improvements we have worked so hard to make as an organisation. We are committed to sustaining these improvements.”
