City of Edinburgh Council Draft Tenant Participation Strategy 2020-2023


The City of Edinburgh Council’s final stage consultation on it’s new draft Tenant Participation Strategy for 2020-2023 is now open on the Council’s website and can be viewed by clicking here.

Through the draft Tenant Participation Strategy, the City of Edinburgh Council wants to ensure that tenants really:

  • Know the different ways they can become involved;
  • can take part and influence decisions if they want to;
  • Have the support and resources they need to take part;
  • Can help to develop quality services.

Tenants developed these outcomes and a recent survey confirmed they want us to continue to aim for these results, with increased transparency and accountability to tenants and greater tenant influence.  The closing date for responses is Friday 10th January 2020.

The Strategy has been developed taking account of feedback from the Tenant Panel and Registered Tenants’ Organisations, including ETF.

A paper copy is available by emailing [email protected] or calling 0131 529 7805.  Please send completed responses to Tenant and Resident Services, Level G.5, Waverley Court, 4 East Market Street, EH8 8BG.
