2023/24 Council Housing Survey

Closes 23 Dec 2022

Introduction

Every year we ask you for your views on how we should re-invest your rent and use this to help us plan our investment priorities and housing budget for the following year.

This year, however, we know that people are extremely worried about paying bills, rising costs and how to make ends meet as it now costs more, and so we’d also like to find out more about the financial challenges you’re facing and how best to support you.

We don’t know yet whether the Scottish Government will continue with the rent freeze beyond next March but, if they don’t, we will consider options for a rent increase in 2023/24 – but only after listening to your feedback.

Any increase in rent would allow us to invest more in your homes to make them more energy efficient and help you save money, as well as improving the services we provide to you. But we fully appreciate that this has to be weighed up against the overall cost of living.
