Decisions:

Purpose of Report

 

To seek approval for the revised Tenant Involvement Strategy 2022 to 2025 which would replace the 2018 to 2021 strategy.

 

Decision

 

That the revised Tenant Involvement Strategy 2022 to 2025 be approved.

 

Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

 

As detailed within the report.

 

Reasons for the Decision

 

The existing Tenant Involvement Strategy was now out of date and a revised Tenant Involvement Strategy for 2022 to 2025, as set out at Appendix A to the report, had been developed.

 

The regulatory Framework for social housing and the social housing white paper required social housing landlords to have a transparent Tenant Involvement Strategy in place.

 

There were five objectives contained within the proposed Tenant Involvement Strategy, which included:

 

·         Co-design services with residents;

·         Facilitate community engagement;

·         Communicate key messages to residents;

·         Co-regulate with Lincoln Tenants’ Panel; and

·         Expand the ways residents can get involved.

 

As part of the launch of the strategy, the Lincoln Tenants Panel would carry out an initial assessment to provide a starting position against which the outcomes could be monitored.

 

The revised strategy would ensure that tenants continue to have a range of opportunities to get involved to shape housing services.
