Our websites

We have five resident reps who sit on two of our strategic committees, the Housing and Community Services Committee (HCSC) and the Estate Management and Scheme Committee (EMSC).

They work alongside our trustees and managers, making important decisions about how we manage our housing and estates.

Housing and Community Services Committee (HCSC)

HCSC play a vital role in maintaining high-quality housing, including supported and sheltered homes, and over-seeing community and tenant involvement. Tenant reps influence and discuss important housing and community issues on this committee.

Who is your HCSC reps?

Viv Talbot

Viv works for the criminal justice system and has been a tenant for nearly 30 years. She volunteered to become a resident rep as she feels BVT’s duty of care to tenants is as strong now as when she first took up her tenancy.


Estate Management and Scheme Committee (EMSC)

EMSC play an important role in maintaining the appearance and amenity of BVT areas. It covers matters ranging from landscaping to advising on planning policies. The Committee also considers issues relating to the management charge and design guides, including hearing appeals about applications for alterations to homes.
