Council hosts tenants’ day event

An array of information on housing topics will all be available when Midlothian Council hosts its annual Tenants’ Day event tomorrow (Friday, June 27).

Topics under discussion include the Housing (Scotland) Bill, tenant participation, local neighbourhood plans, energy efficiency, Homeswapper, registered tenants organisations and the council’s repair service.

The meeting, which takes place at Dalkeith Arts Centre between 12.30pm and 3.30pm, is for all council house tenants – and gives the opportunity to hear more about current housing issues. Lunch will be provided.

There is also a free crèche facility, face painting and a colouring in competition to keep young children entertained.

Spaces are limited so tenants should book their place in advance. To reserve a place phone Midlothian Council on 0131 271 3611 or email
