Tenants' Meetings

Tenants' Forum

The Tenants' Forum is constituted as a consultative and advisory body.  The Forum is made up of: tenant representatives nominated by their tenants'/residents' associations to speak on their behalf on tenant-related matters; street voices elected by the residents of the area which they represent; the chair of the Tenants with Disabilities Forum; representatives from the Leaseholders' Forum; an elected Council Member and senior housing officers. 

Aim

  •  To promote and represent the interests of all Council tenants within the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness.

  • To give tenant representatives the opportunity to discuss issues relating to the management of their homes and estates with elected Council Members and officers. 
  • To encourage and develop tenant participation in the management of Council housing within the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness.

The Tenants' Forum also makes representations to the Council's Housing Management Forum on issues relating to tenant participation, the provision of housing services and any other matters which may be of relevance to Council tenants within the guidelines of the Tenant Involvement Compact.  It also makes recommendations for the allocation of funding for Environmental Enhancement Schemes.   To access information on issues that have been considered and recommendations made by the Housing Management Forum and to view recent reports link to the Housing Management Forum.
