Council offers students neighbourly advice

July 30, 1999

Students renting flats in Edinburgh could soon receive council leaflets with information on washing the stairs, putting out rubbish and keeping the noise down.

The policy and resources committee of the City of Edinburgh Council is contemplating producing a comprehensive leaflet on all aspects of tenement living, following complaints from neighbours about inconsiderate behaviour. Bob Cairns, Edinburgh's convener of planning, said: " Student s contribute a great deal to the city and we want to ensure that they enjoy their time studying here. However, it is vital that we do all that we can to protect and improve the quality of life of all our residents."
