Paul Torrance, Board chair says “we understand the pressures on all our tenants at the moment. Wages and benefits are being capped as the prices of essentials increase. Unfortunately, the costs of providing a good service to you go up year by year. We try to be more and more efficient but at the end of the day, this has to be met from our rents. We are now looking for your views on average rent increase of £2.50 a week from next April. This compares with the previous £4 increase”.
