There are normally two Tenants' Voice representatives but there is a vacancy. For the moment Sandra Longstreth (pictured above) is one of your Tenants' Voice representatives.
Sandra was co-opted to the council's housing committee as the Tenants' Voice following a recruitment drive in which involved tenants fully participated. There will be another recruitment drive to fill the second vacancy when tenants are able to attend meetings again in a Covid secure way.
As part of her role, Sandra takes part in tenant events and joins online Tenant Neighbourhood Ambassador meetings so that she can keep in touch with what tenants think and say about Stroud District Council’s housing services. She also listens to the messages about housing services that individual tenants can leave on her mobile phone 07970952214. If preferred, tenants can write to Sandra via email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternative communication channels, such as an e-form or confidential postal address are also available.
As the Tenants' Voice, Sandra will take tenants’ comments to housing committee meetings and use them to debate with, and influence councillors when making decisions that affect our services to you. For more details visit ‘Have your say on Housing matters’
