Housing matters and tenant involvement schemes

Inspectors and inspections

Tenant Void Inspectors

Tenant Void Inspectors work with our maintenance team to carry out inspections before and after a property has had work carried out when it becomes empty.

This lets tenants see the work carried out when a property becomes empty and then handing the keys out when it is ready to be occupied.

Tenants work with officers and play a key role in ensuring the work is carried out and nothing is missed by our contractors.

Full training is given.

If you wish to get involved please contact 0300 300 8302 or email tenantinvolvement@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk

Estate inspections

Estates Officers carry out monthly inspections on all communal areas of our estates. The Housing Service is always looking for new tenants to become involved in Estate Inspections as we believe that local residents are the best people for knowing their local areas and estates.

There are currently a number of residents assisting us with Estate Inspections but we always need more. If you have an hour to spare every month and want to improve the area where you live please call the Tenant Participation Team on 0300 300 8302 to find out the time and date of your next Estate Inspection.
