The Association seeks to protect and enhance the interests of residents, so it is mainly concerned with matters of planning, traffic, safety and security. This involves regular contact with Councillors and Council Officers. We keep in touch with residents through our Bulletins, through meetings and through informal contacts during the year. For this we rely on the vital services of our Area Representatives.
We look at all planning applications to ensure that anything not in keeping with the area is known to our Councillors and they make representations to the Planning Committee. Some applications affect a large number of residents and we ensure that the views of residents are known to those determining the application. We try to ensure that any resident likely to be affected by an application is aware of the application and can make their own representations.
