Get Involved Now – There’s Never Been A Better Time
The world of housing management and the way that housing providers such as the Council are regulated seem recently to be forever changing. Although new Government policies being developed all the time tenant involvement is here to stay.
As a tenant of Corby Borough Council your views are therefore important. Some tenants are happy to give a long term commitment to being involved whilst others dip on and out of involvement activities as it suits them – and that’s fine.
It’s easy to sit back and leave things to others, but are the tenants that are currently involved representing your views? Could your views make a difference and improve the services that the Council as a landlord delivers to all of its tenants?
There are a number of ways that any resident may get involved to help make a difference to the area and communities that they live in - see link in further information below.
