Insulate Lochend Fairly - Sign the open letter

Last year, Living Rent Lochend branch celebrated winning millions of pounds of much needed investment into the housing in Lochend and Restalrig after taking action at the City Chambers. 

Now, members have written to elected Councillors and responsible council staff asking them to make sure that the Mixed Tenure Improvement Service - an area based scheme to improve housing in the community - is implemented fairly and on the community's terms. 

Living Rent members drafted a letter outlining our concerns with the scheme and our proposals to address them - back the demands and sign the letter now! 

You can read the letter in full here.

Edinburgh Council - Insulate Lochend and Restalrig fairly! 

Use your power to provide: 

  • Fairer funding to reduce the cost of this work for working class homeowners in the most deprived areas of the city by improving the Scheme of Assistance
  • Greater community involvement in decision making
  • Increased protections from eviction for private rented tenants by letting people remain in their homes as social tenants if their landlord sells back to the council.
