Council Tenants' Discount Scheme

Closed 27 Aug 2017

Opened 12 Aug 2017

Feedback updated 21 Feb 2018

We asked

We asked Council tenants what an extended Tenants' Discount Scheme should look like.

You said

Through the results from the online survey and focus group discussion with tenants, it was found that:

  • Discount on food and household goods would be the priority for most tenants. This was followed by discounts on telecommunications and clothes;
  • Tenants would prefer to use a simple discount card;
  • Tenants expressed that they carry out their daily shopping in local convenience stores but travel further to carry out their weekly or monthly shops in larger supermarkets;
  • Transport (particularly taxis) was highlighted as an area where discounts could help;
  • Tenants would also be interested in discounts on DIY, furniture and leisure activities; and
  • Some tenants said that they use the internet for shopping and some had used it to get a supermarket delivery service.

We did

The feedback from the tenants will help to shape the extended Tenants' Discount Scheme. 


Help us to extend the Council tenants' discount scheme and be in with a chance of winning a £20 shopping voucher

In April 2016, the Council introduced a Tenant Discount Scheme, which gives Council tenants a discount on DIY materials in a number of stores across the city.

Tenants have told us that they are facing real difficulties meeting everyday costs. The Council is therefore seeking to expand the scheme and increase the number of discounts and promotions on goods and services offered to its 20,000 tenants.

It’s only by listening to you that we can design and invest in services in the right ways, so please take a few minutes to answer three simple questions in our survey. 

This service is only for Council tenants so please only take this survey if the City of Edinburgh Council is your landlord.
