Over 100 people attended workshops in locations across East Lothian. A further 500 responses were received online.

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

95% 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

79% 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 13th February 2018 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 2018/19.
