Rent Level Consultation 2017/18

Rent Consultation

Thank you to all the tenants, local tenants and residents groups and ELTRP who took the time to respond to our recent consultation on the proposed increase. All the information gathered during the consultation was put in to a report for the Council’s Budget Meeting on 21st February to inform the Council and Elected Members on the outcome of our consultation. A copy of the report is available to download here.

At that meeting it was agreed that council house rents will rise by 5% allowing the Council to continue to deliver significant investment in its existing stock and new build Council housing without compromising key day to day services such a repairs and housing management.

We will write out to all our tenants shortly to tell them what their rent and services changes will be for 2017-18.
