Housing Regulator launches its new website


25 July 2019

The Scottish Housing Regulator today launched its new website.

The launch follows a period of testing, or a ‘beta’ phase. During the beta phase, The Regulator gathered feedback from a wide range of stakeholders through an online survey and face to face sessions. It used this feedback to enhance the site.

Iain Muirhead, the Regulator’s Director of Digital and Business Support, said: “We’re excited to launch our new website. We’ve designed the new site to be accessible, easier to use across different types of devices, and simple to navigate.

“We’d like to thank all of the tenants, landlords and others who gave their feedback. We’ve used your feedback to enhance the site and make it even simpler to use.

“We know that our website is the main way people find out about our work. So, we want to keep making it better. We will continue to work to enhance our website beyond launch to make the information we publish easier to find and use for tenants, landlords and all of our stakeholders.”

The Regulator’s new site is available at www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk
