"The literature on tenant participation points to the failure of tenant participation governance processes to engage and the need for new, more accessible and more tenant owned approaches to participation.

An attempt at developing a program has been undertaken in the Blue Mountains by a grass-roots public tenant’s community group called ‘Neighbourhood That Works’. This participation process, known as ‘Village’, has been specifically conceived by tenants as a ‘tenant owned space’ that supports the sort of ‘instrumental approach to participation’ that researchers such as McKee (2008:34) suggest is needed.

The Village on-line application has grown out of the need for methods of organisation that are simple, accessible and non-hierarchical." (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Village/175083592506774?id=175083592506774&sk=info)
