Rent structure consultation

This consultation is now closed. Please contact Housing and Communities if you have any queries.


Council tenants in East Ayrshire are being encouraged to have their say on a proposed new rent structure, which aims to make rent fairer and easier to understand.

A new rent model has been proposed by a working group of Council tenants, members of the East Ayrshire Tenant and Residents Federation (EATRF) and Council officers, supported by an independent tenant advisor.
