TENANTS will get an opportunity to shape the future of housing in Wrexham at a conference later this year.
On Thursday, September 17, Wrexham County Borough Council Housing Services will be holding its first tenants conference at Glyndr University, Mold Road.
It will give tenants and leaseholders the chance to find out what’s happening in their area and a say on housing issues affecting them.
The two main topics will be social housing and tenant participation.
The conference will also have guest speakers from the National Assembly for Wales, Wrexham council leader Cllr Aled Roberts and the Welsh Tenants Federation, who will also take part in a question-and-answer session.
Cllr Mark Pritchard said: “I am delighted to be holding the first tenants conference in Wrexham and it will be a chance for participants to help shape the future of housing in Wrexham.”
The event, from 10am-4pm, will also be showcasing four good practice awards, and the winners will be announced on the day.
Wrexham council’s housing and public protection department is inviting nominations for the good neighbour, young person, garden and staff awards. To nominate, call 01978 315449.
The conference is a free event. To book a place, call 01978 315449.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided and free bus transport is available from King Street Bus Station.
