We Asked, You Said, We Did

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

We Asked

It is important that minerals developments are restored in accordance with approved plans soon after working has finished. Usually site owners and operators carry out the restoration work but we asked how should we ensure that a financial guarantee is in place in case the local authority needs to take over the restoration work for any reason?

You Said

We received comments suggesting an appropriate scope for the guarantee, it should cover necessary restoration and aftercare only; and proposing an appropriate way to secure the requirement for a restoration guarantee.

We Did

The results of the consultation will be included in a report to the next Strategic Policy and Resources Committee, the date for which has not yet been set.

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 of the consultation were included in a report to Housing and Communities Committee on January 29th 2020, when the rent levels for 2020/21 were set.

The Committee agreed a 3.5% rent rise for 2020/21, in line with the views of tenants. This will keep rents affordable whilst allowing us to make the investments in Housing Services that tenants have told us they want. The rent increase will come into effect from April 2020.
