Good neighbourhood agreements

A Good Neighbourhood Agreement (GNA) is an agreement between a number of residents in an area about what behaviour they expect from one another.

Landlords like North Kesteven District Council help to set them up and use them to make a commitment about what they will do in an area to help residents make the GNA work.

The GNA can have in it whatever residents want! The aim is to improve the quality of life in the community. If enough neighbours agree, the Council will bring together what neighbours are saying and draft an agreement for you to look at. Tenants are able to say what they like and dislike about the draft, and a final version will be produced, based on what the majority say. We will then call on all residents with a copy for them to sign. New tenants get a copy too.
