Lochend branch

Do you live in Lochend and care about your community? Join us in fighting for a fairer vision of housing for tenants and residents who live here! 

Living Rent Lochend branch was launched in May 2023. We established ourselves as a mix of private, council, social tenants, shared owners and homeowners. 

We are passionate about fighting to keep Lochend fair, secure and a great place to live! We do this by running local campaigns and defending local tenants when they have problems with their landlord. 

Since our founding, we have won an £80m commitment from Edinburgh City Council to retrofit council homes in North East Edinburgh after a campaign we ran. To read more about the campaign and the new campaign on the mixed tenure improvement scheme that has come out of it, follow this link.

Over the last year members have also got the council to commit to returning most of the 1,400 empty council homes back into use.

We are currently fighting against rent increases and members are active in trying to ensure that the mixed tenure improvement scheme to retrofit and insulate homes is implemented fairly.

Our branch meetings are currently held on Thursday on the first full week of the month at 6pm. 

Location can change. Check our events page for more details and to RSVP.

We also have member defence meetings on the second and fourth Monday of the month. You can find more information on our events page.
