PlaceShapers submits collective response to the formal HCA consultation on regulatory changes 

Earlier this year, The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) opened its statutory consultation on changes to the regulatory framework.

The consultation follows the HCA’s discussion document last year, which asked for views on how regulation can help protect social housing assets and maintain the credit worthiness of the sector in a more complex and risky operating environment.

PlaceShapers welcomes the extent to which the proposals represent a major shift from ideas suggested in the HCA’s initial discussion paper. 

A collective response has been submitted to consultation questions about: 

  • Governance and Financial Viability Standard
  • Code of Practice
  • The proposed revisions to the disposals regime
  • Changes to the registration criteria
  • Changes to the Rent Standard
  • Changes to the General Consent
