There will be a joint meeting of the Camden District Management Committees (DMCs) on Wednesday 08 January 2020. This will be to input into the Council’s setting of social housing rents and service charges for the coming year.
After four years of mandatory social housing rent reductions, the Council is proposing to raise rents from April 2020. They can raise rents by up to 2.7% (inflation + 1%). This would cover increased costs, as well as allow the Council to provide an improved housing management service, and help to replenish funding reserves to cover unexpected items (e.g. installing new fire-resistant building cladding).
The Council also propose to increase services charges for social housing tenants by 1.7% (the rate of inflation). They propose to use the increased money raised to improve caretaking services, and help improve security and CCTV.
