Residents' groups are residents living in an area, block or street who come together to address issues of common concern in relation to the community they live in and the general environment.
There are many reasons why people may form a residents association, some of which may be:
- To campaign for something ie: play facility, better repair service
- To campaign against something ie: noise pollution, closure of a local community facility
- To gain a greater voice than they would have as an individual when talking to the council about what they would like to change
- To arrange social activities/events.
If you are interested in getting involved with a local group or need help in setting up a residents' group please contact the resident involvement officer Online: Contact the Resident Involvement Officer or call 01322 343682.
