Community Involvement

Community Involvement

This page contains information on how to get involved in the community.

Community Involvement is an informal way of involving you, usually somewhere close to where you live. Methods for community involvement: 

Leaseholder Marketplace will be held at least once a year and will give leaseholders the opportunity to discuss any concerns or queries with officers on a one-to-one basis.  All leaseholders will receive details of upcoming marketplaces.

Estate Walkabouts are held across the Borough.  Tenants and leaseholders are welcome to join officers in their areas to highlight areas of concern.  Visit the programme of walkabouts on the Housing News page to see when officers will be in your area. Walkabouts are arranged throughout the year and we aim to visit all areas of the Borough where there are council owned properties.

Community Groups receive support and guidance to develop where they are working towards an agreed criteria.  Only one group in a defined area will be recognised and supported in their activities.  If you are unsure if there is a group in your area, or are interested in setting a group up, contact the Housing Department for more information.
