District Management Committees
District Management Committees (DMCs) meet four times a year to discuss local issues and housing committee reports. Once a year there is a joint meeting of all DMCs to discuss setting new rents. They also have funds available for residents’ groups to apply for.
There are five DMCs:
- Camden Town
- Gospel Oak
- Kentish Town
You can search for past and present DMC committee reports.
How to join a DMC
To join a DMC you must be a member of a registered Tenant and Resident Association (TRA). For more details see our information on registering your TRA.
After the application
Once you have successfully registered the Tenant Participation Team will send your group:
- confirmation that your tenants’ group is registered
- the date of the next DMC meeting
- the name and contact details of the chair of the DMC
DMC representatives can also claim for reasonable travel expenses and childcare allowance can be claimed through your ward housing team.
