THURROCK Cou-ncil is giving residents the chance to meet senior housing managers as part of its new Housing Investment Forum.

The forum offers tenants the chance to find out more about plans to improve the quality and standard of council homes in a series of themed sessions.

The first of these, covering housing’s capital programme and the introduction of a higher standard for homes in Thurrock, is at the Civic Offices, in New Road, Grays, on Thursday, January 31, from 6pm to 8.30pm.

Sessions will follow in February focusing on repairs and thermal efficiency initiatives.

To find out more, or to attend on January 31, call the tenant participation team on 01375 754608 or e-mail
