There are Housing Liaison Boards ( HLBs) in each Ward in Yardley District: Acocks Green, Sheldon, South Yardley and Stechford and Yardley North. HLBs are groups of tenants , leaseholders and owner occupiers who meet once a month to influence Housing Department policy and to monitor the performance of the Housing Department . HLBs also work with Housing Staff, the police, local Councillors and other agencies to build better neighbourhoods. Representatives from our Repairs contractors also attend HLBs who monitor their performance. HLBs have a budget for improvements to communal facilities and do projects such as creating a new bin storage area at Needwood House Acocks Green.
