Tenant Satisfaction Measures Survey 2023

Housing Services have recently carried out a general satisfaction survey for housing tenants and leaseholders. This has become known as the Tenant Satisfaction Measures (TSM) Perception Survey and will now be undertaken each year. A third of tenants were randomly selected to take part in the survey conducted in late June/July 2023.

The TSM perception survey results provide information around tenants' perceptions of the Council's housing service delivery to support effective scrutiny by tenants of our performance in managing their homes and neighbourhoods. The results are reported to the Regulator of Social Housing as part of their regulatory standards that all Registered Providers of Social Housing (including Local Authorities like Cannock Chase Council) are required to adhere to.

More information on the Regulatory Standards and the Tenant Satisfaction Measures can be found here: Regulatory standards - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and Tenant Satisfaction Measures Standard - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

A summary of the results is provided in the section below and a video of the TSM results is available here: Cannock Chase Council Tenant Satisfaction Survey 2023

The final detailed report can be accessed below, along with an infographic summarising the findings.

Tenant Participation

Tenant Participation is about much more than bricks and mortar - It's about getting tenants involved in the places they live and the services they receive from the Housing Department.

It is very important that tenants give their views on services and how they might be improved. There are a number of different ways that tenants and leaseholders might want to do this.

Housing Services are keen to consult with our service users on every aspect of our service. If you wish to get involved and join a number of tenants who influence the service we shall be delighted to receive your contact details.

How else can I get involved?

You could join a Tenants and Residents Association if there is one in your area.  If not, you may consider starting a new one if your neighbours are interested too.

Tenants' and Residents' Associations are local groups organised and managed by a committee of local volunteers. Tenants' and Residents' Associations are recognized by the Council. They play an important role in building local communities, contributing to the making of policy and the delivery of services to tenants of Cannock Chase District.

Are you interested in shaping housing policy?

Do you want to comment on publications that go out to tenants and leaseholders?


We are inviting tenants to express an interest in joining a new virtual group, where tenants and leaseholders can comment on housing policies, strategies, documents and other publications produced by Housing Services.   This will be carried out ‘virtually’ over email correspondence. 


Virtual panel members will play an important role in providing the housing service with valuable comment and insight that can shape policy that may affect tenants and leaseholders, and help improve publications that fellow tenants and leaseholders would receive.


If you would be interested in becoming a member of the ‘Virtual’ group please let us know. Email serviceimprovements@cannockchasedc.gov.uk or telephone the Service Improvement Team on 01543 462621 to express an interest.
