Who we are
Formed in 1994, the Tenants' Panel consists of tenants and leaseholders who come from many different backgrounds. The Tenants' Panel is an independent, non-political organisation to represent tenants and leaseholders.
All council tenants and leaseholders are eligible to join and panel members are elected through a postal ballot of all tenants and leaseholders every two years. Meetings are open to the public to attend as observers without appointment and are held every two months.
The Panel monitors our performance and discusses housing and other local issues with sub groups such as scrutiny, communications and environmental committees. Tenant and leaseholder representatives act as an important point of contact for other tenants. They help deal with problems and complaints, and raise local concerns.
The aims of the Tenants' Panel are to:
- build an effective partnership between the Community Housing Trust, tenants, leaseholders and the council
- raise standards and improve services. It monitors the work of the Trust, the council, and their contractors
- protect tenants' rights and makes sure that the Trust informs and consults tenants about changes to housing policy, priorities for improvements, and future plans
- makes sure that local services meet the needs of all the community
- ensure that services to not discriminate against anyone on the grounds of age, race, gender, sexuality, disability, religion, or any other aspect of an individual's circumstances.
