Council house tenants will be asked for their opinions.

Tenants can have their say on local housing services and what they think are spend priorities, at a number of tenant gathering events around Fife.

As well as meeting the local tenants’ federation and housing team, there’ll be an opportunity to find out about other local groups, organisations and support services. Children’s activities and refreshments will also be provided.

Housing will be on the agenda at the four meetings

The first meeting took place in Kirkcaldy on Tuesday.

Convener of the Community & Housing Services Committee, Cllr Judy Hamilton said: “Instead of one conference as we’ve had in the past, we’re taking tenant gatherings out to local communities this year. These are drop-in events and tenants are free to pop in at any time during each gathering to tell us how you want to see your rent spent, what you think of where you live, how you want to work with the council and what the rent options might be for next year.

“We really appreciate the efforts of tenants who participate in these sorts of events, which help us shape housing services across Fife. I would encourage everyone to come along and have their say.”

Next week's meeting is in Dunfermline's Vine Church, then Glenrothes' Rothes Halls on Friday September 21 for four hours from 10am.

Cupar's Corn Exchange hosts the final leg of the roadshow on Friday, September 28.

Council tenants who can’t make it to any of the events can contact the Tenant Participation Team on 01383 602220 or TenantParticipation@fife.gov.uk to share their views.

Anyone who needs help with transport to an event can contact their local tenant federation.
