Membership is the easiest way for tenants and leaseholders to influence important decisions about your homes and services – helping you to have a stake in your community.
What types of membership are there?
There are two types of membership: Gold members and Silver members.
All tenants who hold a full Assured Tenancy Agreement, all leaseholders and all shared owners may apply to become a Gold member. Silver membership is a broader group and is intended to enable anybody with an interest in Greenfields to become involved, whether or not they are a tenant or leaseholder.
Gold members can vote at Greenfields meetings and stand for places on our Community Gateway Group or Area Forums. Both Gold and Silver members could also benefit from promotions and discounts from local companies. Examples of membership benefits include:
- 10% off flooring at Edward Walker Carpets in Braintree
- £3 membership fee wavered with Holdfast Credit Union, the local community-based financial organisation, which allows flexible savings and low-cost loans
- Two lessons for the price of one, discounted practical test and free help with the hazard perception and Theory test training with Chris Barnett Driving School
