Have your say on the draft Tenant Participation Strategy

Closed 10 Jan 2020

Opened 11 Oct 2019


Housing is important to people and their quality of life. The City of Edinburgh Council is a landlord for almost 20,000 council tenants in the city; it’s essential that we understand tenants’ views to help shape and improve housing conditions and services.

The Tenant Participation Strategy

Through the Tenant Participation Strategy, we want to make sure that tenants really:

  • know the different ways they can become involved
  • can take part and influence decisions if they want to
  • have the support and resources they need to take part
  • can help to develop quality services.

Tenants developed these outcomes and a recent survey confirmed that they want us to continue to aim for these results, with increased transparency and accountability to tenants, and greater tenant influence.

Please give us your views on ways that tenants can influence decision making on their homes and in their communities by Friday 10 January 2020. You will help us to improve services to you.

This Strategy has been developed taking account of feedback from the Tenant Panel and Registered Tenants’ Organisations, including Edinburgh Tenants’ Federation. Your views will help to finalise the Tenant Participation Strategy.

A paper copy is available by emailing tenant.panel@edinburgh.gov.uk or calling 0131 529 7805. Please send completed responses to Tenant and Resident Services, Level G.5, Waverley Court, 4 East Market Street, EH8 8BG
