Local housing forums

Tenant participation: local housing forums

A local housing forum is a meeting where council housing tenants can discuss local housing services with the council.

There are six local housing forums in Bristol and they will meet four times a year. 

The forums are a place for tenants to discuss local council housing issues that are important to them.

If you're a tenant, you can join your local housing forum and make suggestions about improvements to your local area.

The local housing forums will be a link between council tenants, local decision making organisations, other agencies and service providers 

Each local housing forum can also elect one person to represent them on the Housing Management Board
