Residents who have a passion for improving the communities they live in are being sought to sit on a panel that has direct influence on how housing services provided by the Council are run and delivered.The role, in the Resident Liaison Group (RLG), means you will get to make a real impact on council housing, estates and neighbourhoods by monitoring, evaluating, idea-sharing, and looking critically at what the Council is doing or proposing to do on all services affecting tenants and leaseholders.
As part of this group, which is the highest level of resident involvement, you will look at the performance and policies of housing services and work directly with the Housing Director and the Cabinet Member for Housing Services to influence change and help drive improvements.
The current panel is made up of residents from neighbourhood and resident forums, and the Council is seeking to appoint another seven people - six tenants and one leaseholder - to provide ideas and opinions about housing services.
Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Clayeon McKenzie said:
'We’re looking for creative, curious and critically-minded Council tenants and leaseholders who care about their estates and neighbourhoods to join this key resident-led group in order to help make real impact on how we run the housing services.'
