Residents' Associations

What exactly does a Residents’ Association do?

They can be formal, or informal groups of residents who come together to address issues specific to their area. That could be anything from a planning application to anti-social behaviour or simply to encourage a sense of community. They are inclusive, friendly groups and can help participants meet their neighbours and make new friends. Social events can be organised through an RA and it’s a good way to get informed and involved in things going on in your area.

Together, residents can...

  • achieve far more than individuals alone,
  • act as one voice for their community,
  • have more influence with service providers and policy-makers about getting what our community needs in our area.
