Residents discuss future of housing and transformation at Talkback


Over 100 tenants and leaseholders from across Brent gathered together last night to discuss the future of housing and transformation in Brent, at the first ‘Talkback’ forum since the management of council housing was taken back by Brent Council.

Residents had the opportunity to meet the new Housing Management Executive Team, Hakeem Osinaike (Operational Director of Housing), Troy Francis (Head of Customer Services) and Sean Gallagher (Head of Property Services).

There was a detailed presentation on the future of housing in Brent, and the plans for transformed services including the use of technology. Residents were also invited to ask questions to the Executive Team. 

The meeting was preceded by a residents’ surgery, where residents were invited to drop-in and meet council housing staff representatives and to discuss personal cases and issues, and to ask advice.

The next Talkback session will be held in January.
