An errata was published on Tuesday 15 October 2019 as a result of changes on PDF page 24, paragraphs 42 to 45,  where the breakdown of responses was changed for the number of councils undertaking tenant consultation and the number undertaking an audit of compliance.

The pdf and html have both been updated within the document to reflect these changes.
