Neighbourhood Committees are formally constituted groups of residents and local representatives who actively work together to make a difference and improve their local communities and the services offered by L&Q.
We have 8 Neighbourhood Committees across the 8 Neighbourhoods we work within. Find your local Neighbourhood Committee
