Take part in a local discussion online

Activities for council tenants and leaseholders

Take part in an interactive discussion with other tenants and leaseholders from your area to share what it’s really like to live in your local community. We’ll ask some questions on a series of different themes to find out how you feel about your home and where you live. The discussion will take place online, using Skype.

Anything you tell us will be included in our “How good is your home and your local place?” results. A couple of staff from Kirklees Council or KNH will be there to listen to what you say and make a note of your views. Participants don’t need to write anything – just join the conversation and share your honest experiences with us.

When you take part, you will have the option of entering a prize draw. You could win £50 of Love2shop High Street Vouchers. We will contact the winners in September.

Changes to the management of council housing

In June 2020, Kirklees Council’s Cabinet agreed, in principle, that KNH (Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing) can be brought together with wider council services. It’s important that you have an opportunity to let us know what matters to you at this time. Your views will inform the final decision. Thank you for taking part.
