Highland Council Members agreed a 1% increase in garage rents for Skye and Raasay garages for 2022/23.
A 1% general rent increase was agreed by Members at Housing and Property Committee on 20 January 2022.
Skye and Raasay Area Committee Chair, Cllr John Gordon said:
“The Skye and Raasay Area Committee listened to the responses received through tenant consultation on rent levels.
“This small rent increase in 2022/23 will allow the Council to maintain current levels of service while minimising the financial impact on garage tenants.
“Any additional rent income from garages generated by a rent increase will be applied as an increase in the area repairs budget for garages in 2022/23.”
Garage Rent for Council Tenants will increase by 7p from £6.50 to £6.57.
Garage Rent non-tenant will go up by 6p from £8.03 to £8.11.
As a result, income will increase from £1,706.88 to £1,723.96.
The rate increase will commence from April 2022 and garage tenants will be notified by letter.
