Tenant involvement - how you can get involved

We want tenants to have a say in how we provide housing services in the future.

We do this through our tenant and leaseholders involvement panels.

If you are interested, please complete the Tenant Involvement Survey Form (PDF 1.3MB) and send it back by email to us on tenantinvolvement@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.

Housing Matters magazine

Housing Matters is a quarterly magazine, with stories from your area, information and advice.

Tenant and resident associations

We continue to support the development of tenant and resident associations. Members of the local community run and attend these meetings, organising events and working with local councillors and organisations to make the areas you live in better. We work with residents' associations in Leighton Buzzard, Dunstable, Houghton Regis and the rural areas. If you would like to join a residents' association, or want help setting one up, contact us:

Tenant and resident events

It is important that we meet, share information and gather feedback from you directly. To do this, we have a stall that we take out into the community where you can talk to us, learn about the services we offer and tell us what you think.

In 2019 we were outside ASDA in Dunstable, at the Houghton Regis Carnival and the market in Leighton Buzzard. Coming soon, we will attend other events and be on a green near you!
