We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

This survey was to explore further what tenants told us in the 2019 Tenants Satisfaction Survey about how the ‘Tenant Conference’ can be improved. 

You said

There is a fairly even split between those tenants who had heard of the tenant conference before receiving the survey (52%) and those who hadn’t (48%).

Estate improvements is by far the most popular topic tenants want to hear about at the Conference (47%), with a further 4 suggestions in the free text box. This was followed by fire safety (21%) and Climate Change (19%). Although there were a further 8 suggestions around the topic of climate emergency in the free text box. There were 12 free text comments around the topic of parking and 11 on the broad subject of Repairs and Maintenance.

When asked to explain their ‘other’ response to not being interested in attending 14 people commented that they would not be able to attend due to work commitments, 11 comments were due to personal circumstances including caring responsibilities and 11 comments were saying they felt it would be a waste of their time.

39% of respondents didn’t know they could get help with transport, but now knowing this they would be more likely to attend, and 12% of respondents said they didn’t know there is entertainment for children and now knowing this they are more likely to attend.

We did

Unfortunately due to the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19 the event that was planned for May 2020 has been postponed. Check out our website for any updated information. 

We asked

Winchester City Council has to set its budget and agree the Medium Term Financial Strategy in February 2020, and we invited you to have your say. 

The proposals being considered for the Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) focus on generating the income that is essential to balance the budget but a small number of potential areas for cost saving are also included. There are also specific questions regarding proposed changes to parking arrangements.

You said

The Council received over 3,000 comments from 610 respondents.

585 were individual responses, 5 responses were made on behalf of organisations and 20 respondents preferred not to answer or did not answer the question. 606 responses were submitted online and four were received via letter/email.


We did

The responses were collated and the findings reviewed at the City Council’s Cabinet Meeting on January 22 and then the budget will be considered at the Full Council Meeting on 26 February 2020.

We asked

The take up for tenant training has reduced over the years it has been offered. Winchester City Council’s Tenant Involvement Officers wanted to get the views of tenants as to what they want to see on the training programme and what would be useful to them? 

You said

Looking at the list of possible training topics given as examples the top three of interest are;

Essential First Aid

Defib Awareness

Basic Repairs – what is WCC responsible for? What could you carry out yourself? Basic DIY tips.

All three scored over 30% in both ‘Really interested and would like to attend’ and ‘interested to know more’.

The next most popular topics are;

Healthy Living

Mindfulness (paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you)

Crafting – Learning some upcycling skills.

All scoring 20% in ‘Really interested and would like to attend’ and over 30% in ‘interested to know more’.

When asked if there are any other ideas for training tenants would like to see there were 24 free text responses around the subject of IT and Computing.

We did

This survey was the starting point for Tenant Involvement to work on a new tenant training programme. We have listened to your views and have been working to put together a new programme. However, due to the current restrictions in place to help combat the spread of the Coronavirus this programme has had to be postponed. Please keep an eye out in the future for the updated programme.

Other online training opportunities are also being looked into. Keep an eye out for the upcoming Tenant Training Programme for all the information.
