Block and street champions
We’ve set up a new forum for residents who live in street properties and blocks that aren’t part of a larger estate to have a stronger voice and tell us more about what it’s like to live where they live.
Being a street or block champion is all about making a difference. There are lots of ways you can help.
Here are some things you can do as a street or block champion:
- report issues such as fly tipping, graffiti, litter or communal repairs that are needed
- represent all small block and street property residents at our wider Housing Forum
- help us improve our services
- take part in street or block inspections with our staff
- attend local events and meetings
- join in or organise action days
- put on events and activities for you and your neighbours - with our support
- talk to us about ways we can develop your community - and help make it happen!
The purpose of the block and street champions forum is to:
- act as the representative body for residents who live in street properties on blocks that don’t form part of a larger estate
- make proposals on all matters relating to the delivery of housing services for street properties and small blocks.
- Open to all council housing residents who live in street properties or non-estate blocks.
- Quarterly forum meetings usually held at Shortlands.
- You will be asked to become a member of a group and make a commitment of at least 12 months.
- You need to be able to spare at least 3 hours per quarter.
- Five nominated street and block champions will attend the Housing Representatives Forum.
