Your current tenant representatives

A tenant representative’s role is very important. They are the voice of tenants living in South Cambridgeshire council homes. Their role is to work with the head of housing and councillors to prioritise budgets, work, resources, and policies to deliver a service that focuses on tenants needs.

There are two representatives elected for each housing area (North, East, and West), you can see the current tenant representatives for each housing area in the table below.

What do representatives do? 

 Representatives volunteer their time to work with the council to improve your housing services.

  • They attend a quarterly Housing Engagement Board meeting (four a year). 
  • They spend time preparing for the meetings by reading committee reports, financial and statistical information, and relevant paperwork. 
  • They attend training and conferences to make them more effective when representing you. 
  • They discuss issues, ask questions, help make changes and plan for the future. 
  • Representatives will also host Local Area Meetings where you get updates, ask for your views and answer your questions. 
  • Representatives will serve a four year term, until the next elections.

Local area meetings

We will be holding local area meetings (online for the meantime but in person when it is safe to do so and following government guidelines) in the three different housing areas to give tenants an opportunity to come along to a meeting, meet their tenant representatives and give their input on issues being looked at by the Housing Engagement Board.  There will also be an opportunity to discuss any other housing issues tenants may have.
