Tenants urged to help shape Council housing services

Housing tenants across the High Peak are being invited to get more involved in helping to shape Council services.

Two fun informal drop-in sessions are being held in July to relaunch how High Peak Borough Council engages with and involves housing tenants.

Both sessions, themed around the Monopoly board game, run from 3pm to 7pm - the first is at the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton on Tuesday 2 July and the second takes place in Victoria Hall in Glossop on Tuesday 9 July.

Fiona Sloman, Executive Councillor for Housing, said: "It's important that the housing services provided by the Council are shaped by our tenants and that we are able to listen to their views and opinions and to share Council news and initiatives with them.

"These events are a great opportunity for residents and Council staff to get together in an informal setting to discuss how we can best achieve that and to identify the subjects and services that are important to tenants.

"We'll also be sharing information about a whole range of Council services and I would encourage people to come along to either - or both! We're looking forward to meeting as many of our tenants as possible."

The Council and its partners will be on hand to provide information on services such as waste and recycling, Universal Credit and Citizens Advice and repairs and tenants will be able to find out more about subjects such as home insurance, better homes and gas and fire safety.

Any tenants who'd like to be involved in housing services but can't make either of these events can still take part by completing a short survey which can be found on the housing section on our website
