Tenant-Led Housing Commission (Private Rented Sector)

The Tenant-Led Housing Commission for the private rented sector in Glasgow was launched in September 2021. TIS was delighted to partner Glasgow City Council to trail-blaze the unique Commission model and offer opportunities for individuals across the city to become instrumental in shaping the future of housing in Glasgow.

The Commission is made up of 16 members – 10 are individuals who have lived experience as a private sector tenant who are passionate about improving housing for people in Glasgow, and 6 are individuals who represent supporting organisations, and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience of engaging people with lived experiences as private sector tenants.

  Supporting organisation members include Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living; Homes for Good; Living Rent; Shelter Scotland (Glasgow Hub); Strathclyde University Students Union; and the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE).

The Tenant-Led Housing Commission takes evidence, scrutinises, and deliberates on a variety of housing-related issues:

Investigates the nature and extent of private rented sector housing across the Glasgow City Council area and how it functions to meet different housing needs and demand;

Agrees on an inclusive methodology for collating essential data and information regarding private rented housing.

Engages with key stakeholder groups, organisations, community groups and the public, through a comprehensive ‘Evidence Gathering’ approach;

Establishes a robust and credible evidence monitoring and evaluation framework for private rented sector housing across Glasgow which addresses issues of supply of housing options, rents, and affordability; and

Produces a report and recommendations for reforms, including developments and improvement that address issues of housing supply options, rents, and affordability, which will inform Glasgow’s Housing Strategy.
