Residents Groups

Residents' Groups

Residents’ Associations

A Residents’ Association is just a group of ordinary local people, who meet for a couple of hours every now and then, and work to improve life for everyone in the area. A Residents’ Association can work well even with just a handful of people and you can:

• Get funding from the Council for your running costs
• Work with police to help clear up crime and anti-social behaviour in your area
• Make newsletters to keep locals informed and build a sense of community
• Apply for a grant to make improvements to your neighbourhood
• Really make a difference

Action Groups

We work with residents to create multi-agency groups to tackle issues they have raised, but have not been able to resolve through the normal channels, such as anti-social behaviour, litter, poor maintenance etc. These groups involve officers from Housing, Streetscene, Safer Communities and the Police.
We bring them together with residents in the location that the problems are occurring, so that they can see first hand what the residents’ issues are and agree strategies for resolving the issues. We continue to liaise with the officers to ensure these issues remain a priority and arrange follow-up meetings between the officers and residents so that progress can be discussed.
