Resident's voice your view

Each Board meeting provides an opportunity for Residents to voice their view. If a Resident has a question that they would like the Board to respond to, they should email either Simon Putt, Group Manager, Corporate Resources and Income Management or Carol Cooper, Corporate Services Officer, Board Support at simonputt@seh.southend.gov.uk or carolcooper@seh.southend.gov.uk at least 15 working days prior to the date of the Board meeting. Alternatively write to either of the above named at South Essex Homes, PO Box 5817, Civic Centre, Southend on Sea, Essex, SS2 6FY.

The relevant response will be brought to the Board meeting and responded to in the open session.
