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.

Please see the street and block champions terms of reference for more detailed information.
