Local people working together for our local community
What do we do?
Put simply, we work with residents to try to keep our area a pleasant place to live.
- We look at planning applications and comment where required.
- We liaise with the police to help to keep the locality safe and free from crime
- If there is a broken street name sign, or a street light is not working, or the grass on the verges needs cutting, we tell the appropriate people.
- We have road representatives who keep in touch with residents and report your concerns.
- We keep our members informed through our regular newsletters.
- We are available to hear your views and to act on them.
Working with the Council
- Residents Association Councillors have been in control of the Borough Council for the last 75 years.
- We are not connected with a national political party (i.e. not Conservative, or Labour, or Liberal Democrat, or UKIP) and we are proud of it.
- Our councillors are local people making local decisions about local issues.
What’s important to us?
- Keeping the area pleasant to live in – and our approach has worked for many years.
- Keeping in touch with residents, so that you can affect our actions.
- Taking a non-political approach to local issues.
- We can’t promise you will always get the results you want. Some issues (such as transport, roads and schools) are managed by the County Council or by central government – but we can lobby and speak on your behalf.
