Tenant involvement

Tenant involvement schemes

Portal testing

Do you use digital technology to manage your finances, book appointments and report information? Are you interested in taking part in testing new systems? If you can spare some time, at a time that suits you, we are looking for testers for our upcoming tenant portal, where you will be able to manage your rent, and report repairs and estate issues, all from an app.

To let us know you are interested, email tenantinvolvement@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk with your name and address, stating "PORTAL" in the subject line, and we will be in touch.

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:

Telephone: 0300 300 8302
