Tim Writtle, chair, commented:

“The interim housing board will strive to ensure that services provided by Dudley Council are to the highest standard.”

The board has responsibility for recommending how the community safety and environment budgets are spent, as well as making sure that the council provides affordable good quality homes and services. The new board members have taken part in specialised training and now have the skills and knowledge to challenge how housing services are delivered. One of the board’s first challenges is to carry out a review of the adaptations service.

We currently have 2 vacancies on the housing board, so if you are a Dudley MBC tenant, leaseholder or resident, and are interested in making a real difference to the services you receive, or would like to know more, please contact the participation development team on 01384 815168 or email
