Tenant Voice 

Tenant engagement plays an important part in helping us to shape and improving our services to better meet the needs of our customers. 

If you are a tenant, you can work with us to change homes and communities for the better. There are a number of ways in which you can get involved, including in person feedback sessions and online surveys.

If you'd like to come along in person to a session, please call Alex on 01695 585143 or email

For online engagement, you can access the "Tenant Hub", a space for West Lancashire Borough Council's housing tenants to access all tenant related surveys, share ideas and discuss important topics. 

We want our customers' voice to be at the heart of everything we do, and we hope you will get involved.
