The Regulation Committee is responsible for the regulation of social housing.
About the Regulation Committee
The Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 states that the regulation function can only be exercised by the Homes and Communities Agency acting through an independent Regulation Committee. The Regulation Committee, as a statutory committee of the HCA, is responsible for the regulation of social housing.
The organisation refers to itself as the Regulator of Social Housing in undertaking the functions of the regulatory committee. References in any enactment or instrument to the Regulator of Social Housing are references to the HCA acting through the Regulation Committee. Homes England is the trading name of the HCA’s non-regulation functions.
See the About the Regulator of Social Housing page for information about the Regulator’s purpose, operational approach and contact details.
The committee members are appointed by the Secretary of State.
Current members are:
- Simon Dow, interim Chair - appointment confirmed from 1 March 2018 for 12 months
