Have your say on rent lev­els for next year

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Coun­cil ten­ants in South La­nark­shire this week have a chance to give their views on their rent lev­els for the next fi­nan­cial year.

A con­sul­ta­tion event will be held in the ban­quet­ing hall at the coun­cil of­fices on Al­mada Street, Hamil­ton.

This will take place to­mor­row, (Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 4), at 6pm, with light re­fresh­ments avail­able from 5pm.

All coun­cil ten­ants are wel­come to at­tend and will have the op­por­tu­nity to put ques­tions to se­nior of­fi­cers from hous­ing and tech­ni­cal re­sources about how their rent is used in ar­eas such as the coun­cil’s hous­ing im­prove­ment pro­gramme pri­or­i­ties, as well as to hear the views of other coun­cil ten­ants from across South La­nark­shire.

Any­one wish­ing to book a place at the event can call Alis­tair or Lynn at the South La­nark­shire Ten­ants De­vel­op­ment Support Project on 01698 527108 or email SLPro­ject@tis.org.uk.

Ten­ant rep­re­sen­ta­tives from across South La­nark­shire have been meet­ing with the coun­cil and the South La­nark­shire Ten­ants De­vel­op­ment Support Project since June this year to over­see the con­sul­ta­tion process.

A pri­or­ity for the group has been to get as many ten­ants as pos­si­ble in­volved and pro­vide their views.

A se­ries of con­sul­ta­tion events have al­ready been held in­clud­ing lo­cal hous­ing fo­rums events through­out Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber.

Coun­cil­lor Alex McInnes, chair of hous­ing and tech­ni­cal re­sources, said:“It is cru­cial for ten­ants to get in­volved in the dis­cus­sions on the rent lev­els for 2015-2016 and we hope that as many as pos­si­ble take the op­por­tu­nity to come along and par­tic­i­pate.”
