Kings Norton Housing Liaison Board
There are four Housing Liaison Boards in the Northfield Constituency:
- Northfield Housing Liaison Board
- Weoley Housing Liaison Board
- Kings Norton Housing Liaison Board
- Frankley & Cockhill Housing Liaison Board
Each HLB represents council residents across its ward, and works with other community and representative groups to ensure that the voices of all tenants are heard.
The HLB chairs for the four groups conduct monthly walkabouts, and updates are provided at each meeting. Constructive criticism and also positive feedback is then shared between the group and the officers.
The tenant participation officer facilities the group and ensures agendas/minutes and budget updates are provided, while making sure correct policy and procedures are adhered to.
The tenant participation officer for the constituency is Nadeen Justice. She is currently working with local residents to deliver an action plan for the constituency that involves networking with Northfield INVOLVE, a young people’s forum, engaging with the Northfield Semoli group, and addressing some of the ASB issues through networking with schools and local involvement structures where older groups can come together with young people.
The overall goal is to help bridge the gap of prejudice and discrimination that segregate groups from various age, culture, disability and sexuality.
Each group is allocated a sum of money depending on the number of council properties in the ward. Some of the community improvements include:
- street lighting
- cutting back overgrown trees
- safety barriers
- security fencing
- rubbish dumping
- car park issues
- partnership work with West Midlands Police addressing antisocial behaviour issues.
Any local council tenant or leaseholder can join a Housing Liaison Board.
