Meet the board
A board of 12 volunteers make policies and plans for Parkway Green. It sets our wider aims and objectives and makes sure that our staff meet standards of service.
There are four 'tenant board members'. They have equal decision-making power with the four board members nominated by Manchester Council, and with the four 'independent' board members who are people with specialist knowledge.
