Modifying Local Connection Consultation

lengthy discussion on what our answers should be.  TK took note of

the Consultation by the due date of 23rd October 2020.

Matters Arising

5.  A.O.C.B.

Second bullet point re PM’s concern – TO advised that he had been

contacted to participate in two consultations on Rents and Repairs and

LHM advised that she had received a further complaint from PM which

she wanted raised today in that she as Chair of her Group was not being

kept in the loop about what is happening with TP and she is being told

secondhand about Members of her Group being contacted.  TO stated

that he thought that this was probably due to her not having a

computer but as all pointed out, there is post and telephone.  GL

stated that he had also not received any contact from Perth and Kinross

Council and had tried unsuccessfully to contact them as the Rent

Consultation was due.  Some discussion followed on the different ways

Landlords were contacting their Tenants re Consultations with most

doing it by both post and online which is as it should be.
