AN opportunity has arisen for three people who are tenants or leaseholders with North West Leicestershire District Council to sit on the new tenants’ scrutiny panel.
The panel’s remit is to scrutinise the housing service and look at ways of improving services, while also working to ensure the council achieves value for money for tenants and leaseholders.
The panel members are independent of the council, although panel members often work with officers to gather information to help improve services.
Members need to be objective, friendly, approachable, and treat everyone with respect.
No formal qualifications are required to be a member.
Anyone who is a tenant and wants more information about becoming a tenant scrutiny panel member, should call Peter Oliver on 01530 454605, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
