UK Housing Data Standard - Version 3.5 Consultation

After completing the development of the resident’s complaints and feedback module for the UK Housing Data Standards, we invite you to provide feedback.

With the Building Safety Bill recently taken to UK Parliament adding to recent guidance in the Hackitt Review and Tenant Satisfaction Measures included in Social Housing White Paper providing an added onus on compliance, accountability, and transparency.  This reflects the importance across the sector being placed upon health and safety and increased customer voice.  As a tool to increase data governance, improve performance and streamline regulatory reporting in social housing organisations – we have recently completed the development of the Resident Complaints and Feedback module for the UK Housing Data Standards.

The UK Housing Data Standard aims to support the housing sector improve its data. Individually, housing providers can use the Standard to inform transformation programmes including in designing new processes and creating interfaces between systems, contractors, and customers


To ensure this process is genuinely collaborative and sector-led, we would invite you to view the work that the project group of investors from social housing organisations across the UK have developed, and submit your feedback to you.

To access the interactive version of the data standards, view the standards on the OSCRE web site.
