Equality Impact Assessment Results relating to the Regulations on Enhanced Enforcement Areas

Executive Summary

Section 28 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 requires Scottish Ministers to make regulations for a scheme that would enable local authorities to apply to Scottish Ministers for additional discretionary powers to target enforcement in areas subject to poor housing conditions in the private rented sector. Such areas would be designated as Enhanced Enforcement Areas (EEAs).

This Equality Impact Assessment considers how the proposed EEA Regulations might impact on people because of their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
