Council tenants to have their say on new rent levels
Published: Thursday 14 Sep 2017 by Fife Council
FIFE Council tenants will get the chance to have their say on potential rent options for next year, at our tenant gathering events.
‘Marketplace’ events will be happening at:
- Vine Church, Dunfermline on Wed 27 Sept, 3-6pm
- Templehall Community Centre on Fri 29 Sept, 2-5pm
- Cupar Corn Exchange on Thurs 5 Oct, 3-6pm
- Rothes Halls, Fri 6 Oct on 10am-2pm.
As well as discussing rent levels, and giving tenants the chance to vote on their preferences, gatherings will give you the opportunity to meet your tenant federation and local housing team. You’ll have access to other local groups, organisations and support services – and children’s activities will be provided too!
Convener of the Community & Housing Services Committee Cllr Judy Hamilton said: “Instead of one conference like in the past, we’ll be taking the tenant gathering out to local communities this year. We really appreciate the efforts of tenants who participate in these sorts of events as it helps to give us a steer in terms of setting rent levels for council homes, which will be applied from April 2018.
“We hope tenants will take time to give their views and I would encourage everyone to come along and have their say. These are drop-in events and tenants are free to pop in at any time during each gathering to tell us how you want to see your rent spent, what you think of where you live and how you want to work with the Council.”
All council tenants are welcome and refreshments will be available. Let us know if you need help with transport by contacting your local Tenant Federation details below:-
