Tenant Consultation Events – Rent Review

August 2018

I would like to invite you to the first stage of our Rent and Service Charge review, which are Tenant Consultation events. These events are designed to give tenants the opportunity to learn more about how Osprey Housing set rent levels, and the impact it can have on tenants and the business alike.

The input from our tenants is valuable to us and we are keen to hear your opinions or ideas, and answer your questions in relation to setting the rent levels for 2019.

At these consultation events, sessions are structured for tenants to discuss the principles that should be used to set rents, as well as how we implement change if it is agreed that we go ahead with the proposal. Tenants who come along and share their views will be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of vouchers.

There will be several events held across the Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray areas to allow you to attend any of which is most suitable for you. Each event and presentation session will take approximately one hour, being held at the following venues;

Aboyne – Aboyne Memorial hall, Ballater Road 11am - 19th September 2018

If you would like to attend any of the above events please confirm your attendance by emailing us at enquiries@ospreyhousing.org.uk or calling 01224 548000. You can also confirm by contacting your Housing Officer. It is important that you confirm your place as numbers at each event will be restricted.

We are aware that we cover a large geographic area and that travel can be a challenge for some tenants, therefore we are offering to pay the travel expenses for those who attend. Please bring a receipt for public transport or a note of your mileage and you will be reimbursed on the day.

If you are unable to attend these events the presentation is also available on our website and Facebook page in a video format.

Following the conclusion of the series of events, we will write to all tenants to advise them of the outcome and seek further views. We look forward to seeing you at the event.
