No changes to the Annual Return on the Charter (ARC) indicators following the updated Scottish Social Housing Charter

Dear colleague,  

Scottish Social Housing Charter

Last week, the Scottish Government published an updated Scottish Social Housing Charter. The new Charter took effect from 1 November 2022. 

Our role involves monitoring social landlords’ performance against the Charter. One of the main ways we do this is requiring landlords to submit an Annual Return on the Charter (ARC). In consultation with our stakeholders, we set indicators for the ARC which reflect the standards and outcomes of the Charter. 

There are very limited changes to the updated Charter. We are satisfied that the current ARC indicators in place are still appropriate, and so do not propose adding or amending any indicators.  

As we have previously advised, and as explained in the interim guidance for EESSH2, we have paused the collection of data on EESSH until after the conclusion of the Scottish Government’s review of EESSH2. This means that indicators C10 (percentage homes meeting EESSH) and C11 (anticipated exemptions from EESSH) will not be collected for 2022/23 and 2023/24.                        

Yours sincerely  

 

Helen Shaw 

Director of Regulation
