Local Panels

 

Our Local Panels are part of Network Homes Governance Structure and are made up of residents who work with us to improve services, hold us to account and make sure performance is high.

Who is on the Local Panels?

The Local Panel is made of:

  • Up to twelve members, either residents or independents, which may include up to two Ward Councillors. Members meet quarterly and attend an induction and training programme.
  • Local Panel members are appointed for a term of three years with a maximum overall term of nine years
  • The Local Panel will elect their own Chair and Vice-Chair every two years

What does the panel do?

The role of the Local Panel is to:

  • Make decisions on local issues and resolve them at a local level
  • Make recommendations to the Network Homes Panel for organisational wide scrutiny
