Area Panels - Housing Management

Find out about your Housing Area Panel meetings, where local tenants, leaseholders and elected resident representatives meet and talk with council housing staff, officers and councillors. 

Area Panel meetings

Area Panel meetings happen 4 times a year. The meetings are chaired by a local councillor. The council housing department works across 4 areas in the city.

Find out which area you live in, who your Community engagement officer is for your ward and how to contact them.

All council housing tenants and leaseholders are warmly welcomed. Local resident associations can nominate and elect a representative to attend Area Panels to represent their group's views.

Area Panels consider reports relating to the council’s role as landlord, including:

  • performance
  • services
  • budgets
  • major repairs programme development and delivery
  • policy issues
  • service development

The opinions shared in these meetings are reported to the housing committee and to the wider council. This means residents can have a real effect on council policy and housing management.  

Agenda packs and papers are sent out to all  elected representatives. They are also sent to any council tenant or leaseholder who wishes to be on the mailing list.
