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.
We are currently implementing this Plan through our annual maintenance programmes.
Details of planned investment in our existing stock will be coming here soon.
