L&Q residents can have a say on how L&Q is run and how it spends its money.

Neighbourhood Committees

We have Neighbourhood Committees across the areas where we work, so there should be a group local for you to join. Being on a Neighbourhood Committee means attending meetings to discuss both local issues and L&Q's performance. These meetings give you a real say in how we can work towards reducing poverty, increasing safety and improving levels of employment in an area.

We ask all committee members to read a set of papers before coming to each meeting so they can comment on how the committee should spend money on community projects and improvements. Neighbourhood Committees agree how we spend £60,000 of our estate management budget in their area.

Do you want to get involved in decision making?

We are currently recruiting for Neighbourhood Committee members. If you're interested, please contact us.
