    Seems fair enough. If there are people on the waiting list, then either the rent is too low or there’s not enough social housing. If they up the rents, they’ll be able to build more, win win all round.

  • No keep the rent the same or cut it, sack jobsworths, cut senior managers pensions, waste and other nonsense and still build more houses.

  • “The guidelines are set on inflation rates for last year”

    So it’s not inflation-busting at all. That’s perfectly in line with inflation.
