Regulation and Governance
As a charitable housing association Newlon is regulated by the Regulator of Social Housing. We are also an investment partner with the Greater London Authority (GLA) who lead on the delivery of new affordable housing in London.
Newlon’s governance is overseen by an independent Board. The Board has adopted the National Housing Federation’s (NHF) Code of Conduct 2012 and Code of Governance 2015. Newlon has two instances of non-compliance to declare. During 2016/2017 one Board member, Steve Hitchins, remained on the Board for a tenth year, based on legal advice. The regulator was informed of this. The second instance occurred in our Annual Financial Statements for 2016/2017 where we omitted to note Steve’s additional tenure on the Board. (Sections A1 and D2 of the Code of Governance 2015 refer.)
We currently have the highest G1 rating for governance and V2 for viability from the Regulator of Social Housing (RSH).
You can read the full regulatory judgement on the RSH website.
We regularly publish performance information in the our performance section of this website. You can also find our latest Annual Report, Residents’ Review (our annual performance report to our residents) and our Report and Financial Statements in the publications section.
