Neighbourhood Groups are a great way to get tenants and residents together to discuss the everyday issues that affect them at a local level, such as:
- Anti-social behaviour
- Estate management issues
- Local news and events
- Repairs and improvements.
The meetings are also a good way of getting to know your neighbours, and working together to improve the area you live in.
SKDC currently work with eleven neighbourhood groups which cover most of the District. To find out if there's a neighbourhood group in your area, have a look at our map.
Who can attend neighbourhood group meetings?
You don't have to be a tenant or leaseholder of SKDC to attend a neighbourhood group, everyone is welcome to attend. Occasionally, it may be necessary for the Chair to ask for only tenants to vote on a particular issue, if it only affects council tenants, but most topics are open to everyone.
The groups often invite a member of staff from Tenancy Services to attend meetings, and sometimes have guest speakers from other organisations. Local ward councillors and police community support officers (PCSOs) often attend meetings too.
When do the neighbourhood groups meet?
Neighbourhood Groups usually meet monthly, and must meet at least nine times a year. You can find out when your local group is meeting by checking the timetable below. Sometimes meeting dates do have to be changed. If it's the first time you've attended a group, it's a good idea to contact the resident involvement team on 01476 406342 before the meeting, just to confirm that the date hasn't changed.
