Why participate?

There are many benefits of Tenant Participation for individuals, tenants, tenants and residents groups, local communities and the council.

We need tenants and other service users to volunteer to test our housing services and help us identify where we must make improvements, if you are interested in getting involved in tenant scrutiny, please get in touch by telephoning 01620 827526 or emailing tenantconsultation@eastlothian.gov.uk.

Getting involved in Estate Inspections, for example can help to bring about improvements to your local area. If you are interested in taking part in an inspection, please contact your local Community Housing Officer.

East Lothian Tenants and Residents Panel (ELTRP) is the independent umbrella organisation for tenants and residents groups in East Lothian. The Panel works in partnership with the Council to influence and scrutinise the housing services. If you are interested in getting involved with ELTRP or setting up a local tenants and residents group, please contact ELTRP on 0131 665 9304 - or you can visit the ELTRP website.
