A housing forum is a meeting where council housing tenants can discuss local housing services with the council.

Housing forums in Bristol meet 4 times a year.

The forums are a place for tenants to discuss local council housing issues that are important to them.

If you're a tenant, you can join your housing forum and make suggestions about improvements to your local area.

The housing forums will be a link between council tenants, local decision making organisations, other agencies and service providers 

Each housing forum can also elect one person to represent them on the Housing Management Board
