We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked tenants and registered tenants organisations for their views on our rent consultation and a proposed rent increase of 5%.

You Said

93% of respondents said they were happy with the level of consultation and information they get about the annual rent increase

91% think the rent they pay is good value for money

77% said that they think the proposal to increase rents by 5% is fair

We Did

All the feedback from the consultation was put in a report for the Council's budget meeting on Tuesday 21st February 2017 to inform the Council and Elected Members of the outcome of the consultation. At that meeting a decision was made to increase rents by 5%. We will write out to all our tenants now to tell them what their rent and services changes will be for 2017/18.

We Asked

We asked stakeholders for their views on the proposal to establish a new primary school and its associated catchment area within the land at Craighall, Musselburgh.

You Said

Of the responses which provided an overall view about the council’s proposal, almost all expressed support. In terms of the three individual elements of the proposal, a clear majority of respondents to the questionnaire (88%) support the proposal to establish a new school and its associated catchment area. A greater proportion of respondents overall oppose the element to host initially at Stoneyhill Primary School before relocating until the new permanent facility is built (72%).

We Did

East Lothian Council has made the decision to go ahead with the proposal to establish a new primary school and its associated catchment area within the land at Craighall, Musselburgh, subject to the adoption of the emerging LDP in a format that would require these new education catchment arrangements and facilities to be delivered. In taking its proposal forward, the Council will continue to engage with stakeholders over its planned transition arrangements for children who will attend the new school and those children who attend Stoneyhill Primary School.

We Asked

We asked stakeholders for their views on the proposal to alter the catchment areas of Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School and Wallyford Primary Schools to include the Land at Levenhall within the Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School catchment area. 

You Said

The Council received five responses to its questionnaire. A clear majority of respondents to the questionnaire (80%) support the proposal.

We Did

East Lothian Council has made the decision to go ahead with the proposal to alter the catchment areas of Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School and Wallyford Primary Schools to include the Land at Levenhall within the Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School catchment area. The new catchment and admission arrangements for Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School and Wallyford Primary School will become operational with immediate effect.
