Have your say on housing matters
The council housing committee normally has two tenant representatives. At the moment Leticia Gardiner is in post and we are looking for another tenant to represent the tenant body on the housing committee.
A link to more information can be found below.
Contact your council tenant representative
Leticia wants to hear your views* about how the council is performing as your landlord. Please contact her on the following mobile phone number and leave your comments. Don't forget to let her know if you are a sheltered or general needs' tenant.
Leticia - 07970952205
Alternatively, you can use the e- form below or write to her via Tenant Services, Stroud District Council, Ebley Mill, Stroud GL5 4UB. Do mark your envelope 'private & confidential'.
As your representative, Leticia will take your comments to housing committee meetings and use them to debate with, and influence councillors when making decisions that affect our services to you.
Read the papers that committee members receive and will discuss at the next meeting.
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 representatives, currently just Leticia Gardiner, also attend the housing committee. They bring your (tenants’) views directly to the discussions.
Stroud District Council is one of the few councils in the country where tenants are involved in helping to shape the future of social housing at such a high level.
Deadline for comments: Noon on the Thursday prior to the Housing Committee meeting date.
