What’s Next?

We really appreciate the time that many of you took to respond to the survey and it will help us to focus on where we need to make improvements. It is good to know that we are on the right track when it comes to the neighbourhood that you live in and that most tenants feel safe and secure in their homes.

However, the survey also points out that there are areas for improvement. In particular it is clear that we need to do better with how we communicate with you and that your views are taken into account.

Over the coming months we will be working on an improvement plan that aims to increase satisfaction levels with the Housing Service. Look out for further updates as to progress in our newsletters.

We are always grateful for feedback, if you have any suggestions as to how you feel we could improve communications, please do get in touch with us through our resident engagement team at
