Tenants from across the country attend the 2019 ARCH Tenants' Conference 04/10/2019 Labelled as Development, Consultation, Tenants

Tenants and residents from councils across the country attended the 2019 annual ARCH Tenants' Conference in Bridlington on 3 October.


The conference was chaired by Jenny Hill, Chair of the ARCH Tenants' Group, and was organised and managed by tenants on the ARCH Tenants' Group specifically for tenants and residents of stock retained councils.


The event, held at the Bridlington Spa, was hosted by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and was officially opened by Councillor Pat Smith, Chairman if the Council.


ARCH Tenants' Group members Stella Parkin from Rotherham and John Kite from Sheffield marked the anniversary of the Addison Act and 100 years of council housing by outlining how their councils have been celebrating the centenary.

ARCH Tenants Conference


The theme for this year's conference was "keeping your home safe" and delegates heard from experts in fire safety risk assessments as well as gas and electrical safety.


Jonathan Walters, Deputy Chief Executive at the Regulator of Social Housing explained the role of the Regulator in monitoring compliance with the Regulator's Consumer Standards and the future of housing regulation in light of the proposals in the Social Housing Green Paper.


Workshop sessions examined the future of sheltered housing (led by officers from East Riding of Yorkshire Council) and the current and expected future role of the Housing Ombudsman in handling tenants complaints (led by the Housing Ombudsman) and the event was wound up by ARCH Chief Executive John Bibby who looked at government housing policy and what the future holds for council housing landlords and their tenants and residents.


Watch out for the full conference report and photographs together with details of the winners of this year's ARCH Community Champion awards in the next edition of the ARCH e-bulletin. Copies of the speakers' slides and presentations will also be made available on the ARCH website.
