Information for Tenants and Leaseholders
How the work we are doing is making a difference - Residents helping out at Townhill Park

What an amazing bunch of tenants and leaseholders we have in Southampton! Residents in Townhill Park have earned a TPAS award nomination after they rolled up their sleeves to help transform their neighbourhood. One of our younger tenants at Wyndham Court has won a competition to design a new city flag, and more people are developing the skills and confidence to explore the benefits of getting online – with some tenants even launching their own blogs! Keep up the good work everyone!

We are considering setting up a Local Authority Trading Company (LATCo) for the Housing Service which would enable us to sell services to other councils or private organisations. The profits would then be invested back into council services. You can read more about LATCo online and also complete an online questionnaire to tell us what you think about the proposals. You can also pick up a questionnaire at your local library, in the Civic Centre or our Gateway office at One Guildhall Square, Southampton, SO14 7FP. If you have questions about LATCo please get in touch.

Finally, a very sad goodbye to two well-known and much loved tenants who have recently passed away. Beryl Avery from Lordshill and Ron Donnell from St Denys both played active roles in their communities and were committed to bringing people together to help improve the housing service for everyone. They leave lasting legacies of the importance and power of tenant involvement.
