Rent increases for caretakers

Nottinghamshire County Council is set to increase the rents it charges school caretakers who are provided with a property by the authority.

There will be a 7.3 per cent increase for the 112 caretakers affected, which will work out as an extra £3.48 per week.

Since 1983 the council has reviewed rent on caretakers’ properties on a two year basis and the average increase was £5.70 per week for caretakers in 2009.

The council pays 55 percent for all caretaker properties.
