Budget: rents to rise by £1.86 a week

AVERAGE Council house rents are set to rise by an average of £1.86 a week, Falkirk Council has agreed. However more than 9000 of the Council’s 16,000 tenants are protected from the increase as they are in receipt of housing benefit.

Money raised from rents is spent on things like repairs, maintenance and financing major works such as roughcasting and re-roofing.

Capital investment of £81.1m is proposed over the next three years including investment in fabric improvements, kitchen and bathroom improvements, energy efficiency, hi-rise flat refurbishment and door entry systems.
