Homeowner advisory group
The Homeowner Advisory Group has been formed to ensure GCCRS meets the needs of homeowners. It monitors issues and opportunities, and provides feedback and advice.
In the first instance the Homeowner Advisory Group has been formed by members of the EQC Customer Reference Group (CRG). As the Chair of the CRG has indicated his acceptance, GCCRS has decided to appoint him as the interim Chair. This will be reviewed after six months.
