Tenant Satisfaction Measures

It is important for us to be open and honest with you about the work we carry out on your homes and how this fits in with our responsibilities under the Charter for Social Housing, which was published by the government in April 2022.

Below you can view our performance information based on Tenant Satisfaction Surveys we carried out, where we asked YOU for your opinions on all things repairs to anti-social behaviour.

If you took part in this survey, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time as your feedback will help us to make informed changes to the service that we provide to you on behalf of Southend-on-Sea City Council.

You can find out more about how we conducted this survey by reading our summary approach which can be found here:   Summary Approach to TSMs 2023-24.pdf [pdf] 64KB
