Have your say on rent levels
Published Friday, 03 September 2010
To make sure tenants are involved as much as possible in setting the rents for next year the council is holding a Tenant's Conference this month.
The move follows on from wishes expressed by tenants when the rents were being considered for 2010-11 when they wanted to be involved in the rent-setting process at an early stage.
Taking this on board, the council has worked with tenant representatives to establish a Budget Scrutiny Group to plan the consultation that will be undertaken on rent setting for 2011-12.
This group agreed there is a need to involve as many people as possible so the process will begin with the Tenants Conference which will explain how housing budgets work, what the plans are for future housing improvements, how the council makes sure it is getting value for money and what this means for council house rents.
All tenants are being invited to come to the conference on Saturday 18 September from 9.30am to 1pm in the Banqueting Suite at Council Headquarters, Almada Street, Hamilton.
