Regulator ends statutory intervention in Molendinar Park Housing Association

19 October 2017

The Scottish Housing Regulator has decided to end the appointment of four governing body members at Molendinar Park Housing Association.

The Regulator today published a revised regulation plan which highlights that Molendinar Park has made good progress in dealing with the issue that led to the Regulator’s statutory intervention in March 2017.

The Regulator had appointed four members to its governing body when Molendinar Park identified that its governing body was not constituted in accordance with its rules. It has now addressed this issue and has a properly constituted governing body.

Christine MacLeod Director of Regulation (Governance and Performance) said “Molendinar Park acted appropriately by reporting its governance failure to us when it became known and has worked openly with us to rectify this problem. We will continue to engage with Molendinar Park as it carries out an independent review of its compliance with our Regulatory Standards of Governance and Financial Management”
