It’s important that as many tenants as possible are involved in discussions to help us review what we do and improve services.

Easy to get involved - we will do everything possible to support you to get involved, this includes meeting your individual needs, providing transport to meetings and childcare costs where required.

Please contact us if you’re interested in any of the consultations and look out for adverts in the Housing News.

We will also make sure that whenever we consult you, we will tell you how your views made a difference and will share the outcome widely.

It should demonstrate the local authority’s strategic approach to dealing with key housing related issues such as:

  • Delivering high quality housing and housing related services across all tenures 
  • Setting out its contribution to the effective integration of health and social care
Showing how the LHS is supporting the Scottish Government National Outcomes and Targets, whilst reflecting the needs and priorities of the local authority area.
