Highland Council kicks off council house Rent Consultation across the region
The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 requires social landlords to consult tenants and take account of their views when making decisions about proposed rent increases.
Highland Council Tenant Participation team are starting a month long trip around Highland communities talking to tenants about what their rent money is spent on and consulting on the rent they will pay in 2020 / 2021.
The team will visit as many areas in Highland as they can until 30th November and talk to as many tenants as possible.
A timetable for when they will be in your area can be found on the Highland Council web site at www.highland.gov.uk/rentconsultation - if you see them where you live please stop in and say hello and give them your views!
A consultation paper has been sent out to all council house tenants and you can also take part online here
Chair of CLH committee Cllr John Finlayson: “This consultation provides an excellent opportunity for tenants to have more of a say on how their rent is spent and managed, therefore it is important that as many people as possible take part and share their views with us.”
