Council Tenants

When the Council allocates you a dwelling, you become not just a tenant, but a member of the community in which you live. The Council encourages you to become actively involved in your estate. The Council aims to provide a better level of service in its estates, and to encourage tenant involvement.

The first step in this process of communication is the involvement of tenants in a pre-tenancy training course. This course provides tenants with relevant information on Council and other services in the area. It also provides a forum where people can meet their neighbours and an opportunity to establish resident associations. 

Resident Associations always need new people to become involved, if residents or tenants have suggestions or observations concerning the workings of the resident committee.

We want you as a tenant to participate and have a say in the day to day running of your estate. Don’t leave it to the Council, join in by working through your tenants association, and help make your estate a better place to live. We will listen to what you have to say, after all you are the expert in local knowledge. It is your estate.  You have a say.
