Our Board and Executive Team

Severn Vale Housing Board is our governing body and all members are volunteers (Board Members' pay is currently under review). The Board is made up of Customers, Tewkesbury Borough Councillors and Independent Representatives. The role of the Board is to promote strategic direction, ensure accountability and to support and advise the Executive Team.

The Board has adopted the National Housing Federation's Code of Governance to ensure they are balanced, diverse, effective and comply with legal requirements.

The current members of our Board are shown below.
