The Government expects Council rents to reach the same level as in the private sector within ten years. However this year they have extended the timescale to 2015/16 enabling Mid Suffolk District Council if it wished to restrict the increase to 5.3%. However, at today’s Executive Committee, the Conservative led Executive without Liberal Democrat support have voted to push ahead with a 6.4% increase which they estimate will give the Council some £100,000 to spend on housing repairs. Garage rents are to increase by 5.0%.
