Housing leaders respond

In the last edition of Local People Leading, an article by Neil Gray appeared which was originally published in Bella Caledonia. The author presents a highly critical view of housing associations which many in the RSL movement, for obvious reasons, took issue with. The purpose of this Briefing has always been to stimulate debate and to promote new thinking and ideas but in doing so it neither seeks to cause offence (as this article appears to have done) nor diminish in any way the case for community control. Housing association leaders have been quick to respond.


Responses from two of Scotland’s leading housing bodies were quick to appear. Glasgow and West of Scotland Forum published this article in Scottish Housing News.

Scottish Federation of Housing Associations published a response on their website. Game over? Game on!
