Spent as long as I could, carers permitting, at landlord's Tenant Involvement Group today (TIG). Mixed feelings.

They don't view next years 2.7% rent increase (and the following years similar) as mandatory but are doing maximum rises, in part to make up for 1% cuts since 2015.
They have employed an entire person to deal with tenancy sustainability, in part in anticipation of this.

No plans to borrow more against Housing Revenue Account despite lifting of borrowing cap, in part because at beginning of other borrowing, but feels unambitious (to me)...
A lot of Ground Zero stuff - they've essentially binned, and started from scratch, the housing waiting list, application process and allocations policy. Yet to see what effect this has on size of waiting list.. awaiting data and re-opening of general applications.
Prog of works for complete set of Fire Risk Assessments in blocks - good - and money put aside for fire doors in view of changing shape of what is safe and what meets safety standards.
Also review of all stock planned. Every home. Probably over the years the accuracy of information gets less and less, and can see use of having up-to-date info on when planned works were done, adding floorplans etc.
I hope none of this is secret.
Anyway. Can't help but feel, as I have all along whenever I've been to any meetings, that the critical friend relationship should be more critical and less friend. Still feel this way. Everything from policy to management to info-sharing is basically knitted out of complacency.
