What does the Housing Review Board do?

The housing review board consists of five councillors, five tenants and leaseholder representatives, and two independent community representatives. The non-councillor members are co-opted members and have the right to vote. 

The role of the housing review board is to:

  • consider matters relating to the council's landlord and housing management functions
  • advise the cabinet on housing policy and operational practice, where this affects the council's tenants and leaseholders
  • keep under review the housing stock options appraisal and monitor the conditions which will influence the future arrangements for the ownership and management of the council's housing stock
  • promote good practice and monitor service delivery
  • examine subjects and issues as directed by the cabinet

Full details of the housing review board are set out in the constitution.
