What does the housing committee do?
There are 12 councillors on the housing committee who monitor the work done by tenant services, ensure tenants’ money is being well spent, and that services are of a good standard.
They also decide on multi-million pound projects such as the building of new council homes, and the modernisation of the council’s sheltered accommodation.
Your tenant representative, Sandra Longstreth attends the housing committee. She brings your (tenants’) views directly to the discussions.
