The White Paper
On Tuesday 18 November the Government published ‘The Social Housing White Paper; The Charter for Social Housing Residents’.
This long-awaited document has been released two years after the Social Housing Green Paper and proposes significant changes to a number of issues in our sector, including regulation, safety and accountability.
It also outlines how housing associations like bpha need to ensure that residents are listened to and have access to redress when things go wrong.
Kevin Bolt, bpha’s Chief Executive, said:
“We welcome the publication of the white paper and are encouraged to see the government’s continued interest in the sector.
“It’s vital that our residents live in homes that are safe and of good quality, that their voices are heard and listened to and that we are truly accountable for actions we take. We’re currently reviewing the recommendations outlined in the paper and will continue to work closely with our residents to ensure their views form part of our approach to any new legislation passed.
“bpha is, and will continue to be, committed to listening to residents, taking their views onboard and working with them to create communities they are happy to live in. The publication of the white paper, and any changes to legislation, will not fundamentally change what we do, it will only strengthen it and enable us to continue to build communities we are proud of.”
