Council tenants will be able to shape the city’s housing services after the green light was given to include them in future decisions.

The Tenant Participation Strategy 2012-2015 was approved at a meeting of the housing committee.

The strategy, which is a renewal of an existing agreement, builds on previous tenant participation events organised by the city council and the Edinburgh Tenants Federation.

Betty Stevenson, convenor of the Edinburgh Tenants Federation, said: “We look forward to working with the council to ensure there are better housing conditions and services by involving tenants in decision making.”
