The Borders wide tenants' representative
group - ideally made up of members from all the Borders
local groups. The remit of SBTO is to seek, represent
and take forward tenants views in relation to SBHA Policies
and Procedures and to ensure tenants get the best possible
Tenants have been involved in their
housing service since 1996 and had a great deal of input
into the creation of Scottish Borders Housing Association.
The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 states
that Landlords must have a tenant participation strategy
and this gives tenants a greater say in their housing
service. Tenant Participation is an ongoing process
and there is always a need to involve new tenants.
