Housing Advisory Panels

Housing Advisory Panel logo

The Housing Advisory Panels (HAPs) are tenant led groups. They review the delivery of local housing services and monitor local performance.

There are 11 HAPS across Leeds. Each panel is made up of between 10 and 12 council tenants (one of which can be a council leaseholder), and a Councillor from each Ward within the HAP area. These are voluntary positions which need a high level of commitment from those taking part.

The Chairs and Vice-Chairs of all HAPs regularly meet at their Cross City Chairs Group (CCCG) to help develop how HAPs work,  and share ideas and case studies of projects that have worked well that could also work in other parts of the city.

A description of what makes a good HAP member and what is involved is available in  the HAP Information Pack (PDF 149KB).

Take a look at some recent projects completed by the Housing Advisory Panels in our Annual Report 2016-17.



Each panel has a budget, allowing them to give grant funding for projects that benefit tenants and the local community.  Applications for funding can come from tenants and resident groups, individuals or any other voluntary or community group. HAPs will review each application on its own merits. However, panels will need to see how the project will benefit tenants as the funding comes from tenants rent.

Please note: the Outer South East HAP have a £5,000 limit on applications.
