We are asking Edinburgh City Council to Implement a Rent Pressure Zone across the city to stop sky-high rents driving people into poverty.

 

Renters in Edinburgh are struggling. Year in, year out rents go up far faster than wages, and it is reaching a breaking point. Edinburgh City Council has the power to designate areas as so-called ‘rent pressure zones’ and bring in rent controls, to stop landlords ripping tenants off for poor-quality housing. It’s time for them to use these powers.

    Weak ass rent controls from the Scottish Gov don’t go far enough but this will have to do in the mean time. Let’s make the pressure zone cover the whole of the city like it was designed for (Aberdeen was the case study used in development).
