Rent Consultation 2020-2021

Closed 15 Nov 2019

Opened 1 Oct 2019


Every year East Lothian Council consults with tenants, tenants' and residents' groups, and East Lothian Tenants and Residents Panel (ELTRP) on our proposals to increase rents.

The council is considering a rent increase of 5%. Based on our budget planning this is an estimate of what it will take to maintain existing services, continue with our investment in the development of new council homes, and maintain and improve our existing housing stock.

You can find details of how rent money is currently spent in the Rent Level Consultation Leaflet under Related Documents below.

How to Have Your Say
