Rent equalisation delays stock transfer process

I understand that Plaid in Gwynedd have now had to face the consequences of making no previous moves on the equalisation of council rents. As a result the Council will have to write to all tenants explaining that the offer relating to stock transfer will be based on equalisation of rents across the county.

It is of interest to me as tenants in Arfon have generally paid more over the years.

It seems the letter to tenants may not appear before May's elections (for some surprising reason) but the problem is the significant disparity in rents between three previous district areas of Arfon, Dwyfor and Meirionnydd.

Rent equalisation must be clearly spelt out in the offer document to be received by tenants. An issue in which I feel Arfon has been let down by Plaid Cymru and we await to see what their previous heartlands make of the news.
