How you can get involved

New!! - Flat Block Champions

Do you want to be an extra pair of "eyes and ears" by helping our Service Charge Officer to monitor the communal cleaning, grounds maintenance and repairs that take place at your flat block?

Once the tenants and leaseholders on the Service Charge Task and finish group have decided how this will work, we will be sending out invitations to take part in this project.

For more information please contact: resident.involvement@bcpcouncil.gov.uk or call 01202 458314

Resident Involvement Panels

Task and Finish Groups  – This could be a one-off meeting lasting about two hours, to look in depth at specific issues. For example, during 2019 we used this type of group to review the gas servicing process. This has resulted in recommendations being agreed and improvements being made to the letters.

Panel Meetings – Which will be held three times per year.  They will start at approximately 10.30am and finish about 2.30pm, with the aim of obtaining feedback and updates from the members who have been involved in the Task and Finish Groups, ultimately making recommendations for service improvements or changes.

Reading and Communications Panel

Sometimes we ask tenants and leaseholders to read through a document (for example a proposed new leaflet or brochure). We ask them to tell us what they think and to check it's resident friendly and written in plain English.

Members of this panel are contacted via email. If you are interested in helping us please contact us with your email address.

Task and Finish Groups

We occasionally invite tenants along to some smaller group meetings to look at improvements, one project at a time.

Home News

Home News is our magazine for tenants and leaseholders. There are sometimes discussion groups about the magazine. You may also want to send Home News an article.

Customer satisfaction surveys

If you’re a new tenant or have recently had a repair to your property, an officer may have asked you some questions over the phone about the service. 

Annual Report to Tenants

This is now included in our Home News magazine. It is our opportunity to tell you how we are performing, celebrate our achievements and highlight where and how we need to improve. We hope you find it a helpful snapshot of the past year.
