ALACHO carries out a survey of council rent rises every year in March. Councils are asked to report the figures that they have used in consultation with tenants and in presenting the rent rise for approval to elected members. How the calculation is done is up to the Council and may vary between Councils. This measure simply reflects the way each council reports its rent rise locally.
As a result, the figures presented here may differ from other figures for average rents and rent rises that are published each year including through the Annual Return on the Charter, by the Scottish Housing Regulator, and the Scottish Government’s digest of HRA financial statistics.
Where the figure for the previous year's rent is shown in red this reflects the fact that the Council has recalculated its average to reflect changes in stock during the year.
