Scottish Housing Quality Standard

In February 2004, Scottish Ministers announced that, following the recommendations of the Housing Improvement Task Force and subsequent consultation, they were introducing a national standard to establish a minimum set of quality measures (SHQS) for all houses in the social rented sector.

  • Each housing association and local authority had to prepare a Standard Delivery Plan outlining how they proposed to reach the SHQS within their stock by 2015.
  • Atrium Homes submitted a Delivery Plan in line with the requirements. This was accepted as a realistic and achievable plan to ensure that all Atrium’s properties achieve the SHQS by 2015.
