Rent Level Consultation 2024/25

Closes 15 Dec 2023

Opened 31 Oct 2023


East Lothian Council consults with tenants, tenants and residents' groups and East Lothian Tenants & Residents Panel (ELTRP) on any proposals to increase rents.  We know decisions about rent and how we spend the money we collect is extremely important.  The money you pay in rent goes towards the cost of providing you with the services you receive as a council tenant.  This year the council is considering three options for a 2024/25 rent increase.
