    A couple of thoughts from last night’s discussion:

    At the moment, each TRA can send two reps from each estate to Area Housing Forums.
    The new structure does not specify who the resident reps will be, how they will appointed/elected, or how many ‘Areas’ there will be – between 3-7?
    We’ve asked that there will be a ‘co-production working party’ (i.e. resident and officers/councillors) discussion meeting to work out these things.

    The new forums will definitely have to REALLY involve residents who attend – be a genuine part of the discussion, policy making, decision making and budgets.

    It was also recognised that reps often do not come to Area Housing Forums to do Area Housing Forum business, but are often motivated to turn up to bring a particular issue that affects them or their estate – to have a face-to-face discussion with those who can affect change (officers and councillors). We should look at creating a forum for people to bring their issues to officers and councillors, so that the ‘executive’ forum can get on with it’s business and policy making with less interruption, whilst creating a forum where residents can be heard without being told to ‘keep to the agenda’.
