Information about Housing Scrutiny Committee

The Housing Scrutiny Committee consists of nine councillors and six tenant and leaseholder representatives (two posts currently vacant).


The councillors and the representatives scrutinise the decisions of the Executive Councillor for:

·      Community Safety, Homelessness and Wellbeing

·      Housing


The five tenants and one leaseholder on the Housing Scrutiny Committee are elected every four years through a citywide ballot of all Cambridge City Council tenants and leaseholders. For independence, the ballot is run by an external organisation, Electoral Reform Services.


The number of tenant and leaseholder places on the Committee represents the proportion of tenants and leaseholders living in Cambridge City Council properties.


Elected residents on the Committee can receive an allowance to cover their expenses and compensate for their time.
