Income related rents for Council tenants? Yes

Budget announcement that income related rents will be extended to social housing providers is good news but it also needs to be extended to Councils as well. Such a move might put $30m into the pocket of WCC to help our tenants. We are likely to make a submission to Government to support this point.

As part of this programme, there will also be a move to shift tenants from state housing. This is hugely concerning. Many of these tenants don't have a lot of options, if they are made to shift, where will they go?
