Strategy Finance & City Regeneration Committee

Agenda Item 60(b)


Subject:                    Public Involvement – Written Questions


Date of meeting:    5 October 2023





A period of not more than fifteen minutes shall be allowed at each ordinary meeting for questions submitted by a member of the public.


The question will be answered without discussion. The person who asked the question may ask one relevant supplementary question, which shall be put and answered without discussion. The person to whom a question, or supplementary question, has been put may decline to answer it. 


The following written questions have been received from members of the public:



1.    There has been no consultation with the residents prior to this report which is a real shame. Considering the years of disrepair issues and the breach of the lease agreement by Southern/Optivo, which has had a significant impact on our living conditions and energy efficiency and uninhabitable conditions. For the record I have reported this to directors going back to Larissa Reed. It seems residents have been left to bear the consequences of these breaches without input into the resolution process. 

How will the council ensure meaningful resident involvement moving forward?
