Resident involvement - Tenant Scrutiny Panel
Tenants and leaseholders needed for the Tenant Scrutiny Panel; to scrutinise our performance, identify areas for improvement, influence future service delivery and investigate complaints.
The government's Localism Act has changed the way in which tenants and residents can hold their landlords to account. New empowerment standards contained in the Localism Act will enable tenants and leaseholders to, "scrutinise their provider's performance, identify areas for improvement and influence future delivery".
In order to encourage this, Basildon Council is now in the process of creating a new Tenant and Leaseholder Scrutiny Panel that will include eight members who are council tenants or leaseholders. The Panel will meet regularly to undertake this new scrutiny role on behalf of all tenants and leaseholders from across the Borough. Not only will this panel scrutinise performance but they will also investigate stage 3 complaints from tenants and leaseholders.
