Dudley Federation’s initial response to the Regulator of Social Housing Regulatory Notice
Dudley Federation are very disappointed, but not surprised at the decision of the Regulator for Social Housing. This can be viewed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dudley-metropolitan-borough-council/regulatory-notice-dudley-metropolitan-borough-council-27-april-2023
Dudley Council’s response can be seen here: https://www.dudley.gov.uk/news/dudley-council-takes-action-on-housing-data/
Whilst we accept that there is a plan in place – a stock condition survey of all 21,123 properties – we do have concerns that Tenants will pay for the mistake in the long run.
We will be very keen to find out, once the surveys have been completed, how information will be collected and stored to prevent similar mistakes happening in the future.
More information on the stock condition survey can be found here: https://www.dudley.gov.uk/residents/housing/stock-condition-survey/
