If you’re a Newark and Sherwood District Council tenant or leaseholder and care about your home, where you live and the housing services that you receive, why not help us to improve what we do and how we do it?
We can help you set up safe events in your community to try to get more people involved or you can work with us individually to improve the services that we offer to all tenants. It really is up to you!
Tenant involvement opportunities
Over the next few months we are reviewing how we do things. Tenants and leaseholders will be able to suggest ways in which they would like to see how things work. Together we will provide a menu of opportunities for all people, whether you have a day to spare, a week or even just five minutes.
In the meantime if you want to get involved now, you can either speak informally to a tenant who is already involved or if you want a general picture about what is available at the moment, email our Tenant Engagement Officers at email@example.com.
Local Influence Network
Following feedback from tenants, the Local Influence Network has been set up to give tenants the opportunity to speak to one another and share their views on their local community with District Council officers.
There are four specific networks for our district, one for Newark, one for Sherwood and a third for all rural locations. Local Influence Network meetings will take place every few months. There are, already, a number of willing tenants wishing to take part but more are being encouraged to join and feedback their views to help shape and improve local areas.
More information is available on our Local Influence Network webpage including details on how you can get involved.
Community Link Groups
Our Community Link Groups complement and provide feedback to our Local Influence Network.
Taking place at locations across the district the Groups provide a more local focus and provide an opportunity for tenants, leaseholders and residents to raise issues and ideas that are specific to their local community. Issues and ideas discussed at the Community Link Groups will be raised to the local LIN Chair for further discussion at the LIN meetings and through to the District Council for consideration.
More information is available on our Community Link Group webpage including details of when the next meetings are taking place.
Estate walkabouts are a great way for you to help us keep our communities clean, tidy and problem free. You will meet other tenants, staff members and agencies involved in maintaining acceptable standards in our communities.
We aim to resolve any issues within four weeks, which could involve us working with tenants to tidy gardens or replacing missing street signs.
All walkabouts start at 10:00am.
