We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

What rent level increase you preferred for 2020/21 out of three options:

3.5%

4%

4.5%

You Said

A total of 1,251 tenants responded to the Rent Level Options 2020/21 consultation. 

The results are:

Option 1 - 3.5% increase: 708 votes (56.59%)

Option 2 - 4% increase: 397 votes (31.73%)

Option 3: 4% increase: 146 votes (11.67%)

Therefore, Option 1, a 3.5% increase, was the preferred option.

We Did

These results will be included in a report that goes to Housing and Communities Committee on January 29th 2020, when the rent levels for 2020/21 will be set.

The feedback provided by tenants through the consultation will be presented to Councillors at that meeting before they make their decision.

We Asked

Following the Summer Tenant Conference 2019 where investment in Housing Services was discussed with attendees, we asked the wider tenant population for more detailed information on how you wanted us to invest in your housing services during 2020/21.

You Said

Tenants gave us some further detailed information on their preferences for investment.

We Did

The information you provided fed into the process that produced the three Rent Level Options and investment proposals for 2020/21 that tenants were given the opportunity to vote on in November and December 2019.

We Asked

What tenants' priorities were for investing in Housing Services during 2020/21.

You Said

Areas of high priority for tenants were:

  • Keeping my home well maintained and warm (such as energy efficiency, door entry systems)
  • Improving the maintenance of my neighbourhood (such as fences/boundary walls/bin stores)
  • Increasing the number of council homes for rent in the area
  • Improving the services we provide to older tenants

We Did

We presented the findings to the Summer Tenant Conference in 2019 and asked tenants to drill down further to tell us what their highest priorities were for investment.

The questions we asked tenants at the Conference then went out for further consultation.

The findings were used to come up with the 2020/21 Rent Level Options and investment proposals that were presented to tenants to vote on in November and December 2019.
