Neighbourhoods Panels

WDH has seven Neighbourhood Panels which are made up of tenant, independent and Council members.

The role of Neighbourhood Panels is to determine local priorities and contribute to the development, implementation and challenge of local plans and engagement strategies. Neighbourhood Panels work to ensure residents from across the district are involved in everything we do.

Do you want to make a difference in your community? Join one of our neighbourhood panels, and you'll be able to do just that.

For more information contact 01977 724601 or email neighbourhoodpanels@wdh.co.uk.

Customer Excellence Group (CEG)

We are committed to co-regulation with our tenants and residents, ensuring that scrutiny and challenge is applied to our services and performance.

The CEG plays a key role in making sure this happens in practice by:

  • Providing a tenant-led approach to looking at the services which directly affect them
  • Acting as a critical friend to the organisation and taking an independent view of our performance before assessing it against agreed standards
  • Operating independently of any decision making structures on behalf of tenants and residents to make sure we provide tenant-centred services of the highest standards

Are you passionate about the community you live in? Do you want to be involved in the standard of housing available to you? Can you challenge in a positive, objective and constructive way which aims to add value, recommending improvements where necessary?

If so, then becoming a member of our CEG may be for you.

For more information contact 01977 788647 or email tenants@wdh.co.uk.
