Empowering Tenants

We are committed to making tenant participation a reality by actively encouraging and improving tenant involvement and consultation.

Under the Housing Act 1985, councils must give tenants and leaseholders an opportunity to have their say before changes are made to services, policies and programmes. The Council is becoming more answerable to local people and letting them know how decisions are made. In turn, tenants and leaseholders are invited to get involved in housing matters and to tell the Council of their areas of concern.

To make sure that local people are involved in decisions that affect their homes and communities, we have provided a number of different options for tenants and leaseholders to get involved.

If you are interested in getting involved, want more information about groups in your area, or just want to tell us about issues that concern you, give the Tenant Involvement Team a call on Freephone 0800 716 987.
