Council pushes through 5.38per cent hike for housing tenants in Winchester

Daily Echo: Inflation-busting rent hike for city tenants Inflation-busting rent hike for city tenants

WINCHESTER councillors have pushed through an inflation-busting rent hike.

They voted overwhelmingly for an increase of 5.38 per cent |for affordable housing rents in the city for 2014/2015 |and housing bosses |insist the extra increase is completely unavoid-|able.

They say it is in line with a business plan agreed with the Government, where the rise consists of inflation plus 0.5 per cent, plus a £3 increase for more than half of its tenants.

Civic chiefs said the planned increases will bring the rents of council tenants more in line with tenants renting in the private |sector.

It will also help protect its housing plan which includes building 300 new homes over the next ten years, as well as good maintenance of existing stock.

This will be the fourth year of above-inflation increases.

Stupid councillors ear too much. They should try living on the pitiful income those tenants get.

Oh well - same old same old. We've had a rent rise every year, but Council Tax hasn't risen for 2 years. As long as the over-wealthy keep their money in their pockets, Winchester City Council don't give a ****.

No doubt the councillors and council hierarchy in their ivory towers have received a nice pay rise and allowance boost. Someone's got to pay for it.

Thank you Sass. An "inflation busting " rise from an excessively low base is not a "rise" at all in terms of a market rent, but try explaining that to the innumerates above.

Glad you're okay Sass & DaiRear. Lucky enough to own your own house are you?

It IS a significant rise if you are one of the many Hampshire County Council employees on the lower pay grades and have been on a pay freeze for 5 years. Care workers (and there are quite a few around here) are on disgustingly low wages. People don't tend to live in council houses because they're 'rollling' in it.

Oh - and before you go on about benefits - despite media coverage - not many people get them
Winchester rents have risen every year - council tax hasn't.

Could be, the first breathyliser I ever did was to a gentleman who got out of his Daimler Dart and introduced himself as a high court judge. Possibly I am guilty of reverse snobbery as I cannot stand idiots who think they are better than the rest of us.

You get a good pension officer. To return to the point, why should your rent be less than what others, not as privileged as you, would pay?

As usual your posts are ill informed. Try using another orifice when you speak. As far as my first breathyliser was concerned he really did seem to think the law didn't apply to the likes of himself and appeared to have the same attitude to the rest of humanity as you seem to. Personally I accept that in a crowded country that allows immigration even though too many of the itinerant population are already unemployed a lot of genuine job seekers will be unemployed and others forced to accept very low pay just to get by. They will not be able to get mortgages through no fault of their own so their is a great need for more social housing at affordable rents. The alternative is that higher rents are paid to C'moron's friends thereby increasing the housing benefit payouts that are paid for by the rest of us. I assume you may be one of his rich landlord friends as you seem to like this.

When any cop pulls over another they always identify themselves in order to invoke "professional courtesy". It often works, I know for a fact. Why would a high court judge not try the same.
If you can't afford a mortgage whose fault is it? Life is about choices. Study hard, work hard, forego pleasure and little luxuries when young, and you can enjoy a rent free retirement.

When any cop pulls over another they always identify themselves in order to invoke "professional courtesy". It often works, I know for a fact. Why would a high court judge not try the same.
If you can't afford a mortgage whose fault is it? Life is about choices. Study hard, work hard, forego pleasure and little luxuries when young, and you can enjoy a rent free retirement.
'Try' the same says it all. And not everyone is lucky enough to be able to work hard and pass exams etc, people are made with different abilities so I get the feeling you have a Hitler type opinion of what should happen to your child if he/she cannot perform to your so perfect expectations.

Let me guess; you were in the Met? You get a good pension officer. To return to the point, why should your rent be less than what others, not as privileged as you, would pay?[/p][/quote]As usual your posts are ill informed. Try using another orifice when you speak. As far as my first breathyliser was concerned he really did seem to think the law didn't apply to the likes of himself and appeared to have the same attitude to the rest of humanity as you seem to. Personally I accept that in a crowded country that allows immigration even though too many of the itinerant population are already unemployed a lot of genuine job seekers will be unemployed and others forced to accept very low pay just to get by. They will not be able to get mortgages through no fault of their own so their is a great need for more social housing at affordable rents. The alternative is that higher rents are paid to C'moron's friends thereby increasing the housing benefit payouts that are paid for by the rest of us. I assume you may be one of his rich landlord friends as you seem to like this.[/p][/quote]When any cop pulls over another they always identify themselves in order to invoke "professional courtesy".
