The Results are in!

February 27th 2020

Thank you to all the tenants who took the time to complete our Rent Consultation exercise, which was open during all of January and the first weeks of February.

Tenants were invited to either return a paper survey via freepost, or use our online link via the Association’s website.

We were delighted to receive an excellent return, with a total of 126 responses. The final results were as follows;

• 17% of respondents indicated a preference for Option 1 (The current Business Plan level of RPI inflation + 0.5%)
• 83% of respondents indicated a preference for Option 2 (Bringing forward a reduced increase one year early – RPI inflation only)

A report was presented to the Association’s Management Committee on Thursday 20th February 2020, and they adopted Option 2, in line with the consultation results.

All tenants should now have received rent notification letters for April 2020. If you have not received your letter, or you have any queries or concerns regarding the payment of your rent, please contact the Association office. Our staff are here to help, and can provide you with support if you are struggling with your finances.
