Final Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment 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).

The Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment considered the expected costs, benefits and impact of the proposed regulations, and ensured that any impact on business, particularly small enterprises, was fully considered before regulations were laid.
