The Scottish Housing Regulator has ended its statutory intervention at Antonine Housing Association. It ended the appointment of the statutory manager and the four remaining governing body appointees on 1 October 2018 when Antonine transferred to Caledonia Housing Association.
The Regulator today published a revised regulation plan for Caledonia who will now take forward its plans to deliver better services and additional investment for tenants.
Ian Brennan, the Regulator’s Director of Regulation said:
“With the support of our statutory appointments, Antonine was able to address the immediate risks to the interests of tenants and service users. In July 2018, Antonine’s tenants voted overwhelmingly to transfer to Caledonia. This is a good outcome for tenants and brings greater certainty for them when it comes to the homes and services their landlord provides.”
