Brentwood Borough Council welcomes the involvement of tenants and leaseholders in developing and improving the Housing Service.
Resident Involvement gives tenants and leaseholders opportunities to have a say in...
- the management of their homes
- development of their communities
- improving their environments
- giving feedback on their views of their area
- help us to shape the future service
A number of tenants and leaseholders across the Borough work closely with the Council and their local communities, to have their say and help make a difference to their housing service.
Information on how to set up a residents association or monitoring committee can be found on the Resident Involvement....How to get involved? web page. On this page there is also information on the many ways that residents can get involved in their housing service, at whatever level they choose. After a recent review of the opportunities available for resident involvement, we have now widened the scope of activities and opportunities open to residents, from attending Tenant Talkback meetings, to setting up a residents group or being involved in an email consultation. We hope that there is something that will appeal to most people and suit their availability. Please visit our 'How to get involved' page to find out more about the opportunities that are available.
Please contact us by filling in the online enquiry form if you would like more information about resident involvement, or would like to have an informal chat with the Resident Involvement Officer.
We have a small budget available to help residents with making improvements to their estates, either towards garden equipment and plants or towards capital improvement projects such as installing a bike shelter, landscaping gardens, erecting new fencing or installing a community notice board.
Please see the link below to download and print off an application for either type of project funding, these need to be sent back to the Resident Involvement Officer at the Town Hall, please get in touch if you need any assistance with completing the forms.
