Call for new members on influential Council Tenant forum

THE BODY THAT provides Moray Council with vital feedback on a range of housing issues is calling for new members.

Moray Tenants’ Forum currently meets at around two-month intervals, gathering views on a wide range of issues and feeding information back to the local authority.  This ensures that officials are aware of the issues that most concern council tenants – and influence future decisions that affect them all.

The two-way flow of information also sees the Council consulting with the Forum ahead of any changes in policy they may be planning from time to time.

Current chair Katy Holmes explained: “Our meetings are informal and friendly and anyone who is a council tenant is welcome to join us.  It is an exciting time to get involved and I hope that tenants will come along to our meetings so they can have a say about housing services.”

Help is available with expenses for travel or childcare costs for those attending meetings.

The forum’s annual general meeting takes place at the Inkwell in Francis Place, Elgin, on Monday, April 10 and anyone who would like to attend can call 0300 123 4566 or Email
