Top regulatory ratings

Cottsway has retained the top regulatory ratings for Governance and Viability from the Regulator of Social Housing (RSH).

The RSH published the regulatory judgement yesterday (31st October) following a review, with the following ratings which display full compliance by Cottsway:

·         Governance grade: G1 – full compliance with the RSH’s Governance standards

·         Viability grade: V1 – showing that Cottsway meets the RSH’s viability requirements and has the financial capacity to deal with a wide range of adverse scenarios. 

Providers regulated by the RSH must achieve at least a G2/V2 rating to be compliant and the G1/V1 rating means Cottsway has received the highest rating possible. 

The West Oxfordshire-based housing provider manages more than 4,600 homes and houses over 10,000 people in the district, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire:

Chief Executive Vivian Rosser said: “These ratings are really important and we’re delighted to have maintained our high standard – it’s something to be celebrated as regulations have tightened.

“It is positive recognition for everyone at Cottsway and displays that we are in a strong, robust position, which we will continue to build upon as we work to provide around 1,000 more much-needed rental and shared ownership homes for local people over the next five years, while continuing to provide a great service for our existing residents.”
