If you have ever come up with ideas that would improve your housing or think that the housing service could run more efficiently and effectively, then you are an ideal candidate to join one of our consultative groups.

Panels

The panels have been set up so council tenants can meet housing staff and have a say about their local area, be involved in monitoring, scrutinising and shaping the housing service & influence policies. Even though the panels are open to all SCC tenants, the tenants need to be elected to become a panel members.

Tenant inspectors: If you are interested in what each department and can make recommendations to improve the service.

Tenant repairs panel:If you are interested in the hands on work of repairs and maintenance.

Tenant resource group: If you are interested in how the housing budget is spent.

Tenant scrutiny panel: If you are interested in how the housing department sets and works towards its targets.

Forums

Forum meetings are open to all SCC tenants and leaseholders. Tenant's forums aim to improve housing services and conditions for our tenants; give tenants the opportunity to join in, raise concerns and find out more about issues that affect our local community.
