A Residents Association is a group of people in the same area who get together to look after their interests.
It is the council's policy to formally recognise TRAs whose membership is open to all the tenants and residents living on its estate or defined area and which are governed by a set of rules, called a constitution in line with the model constitution that we recognise.
Council recognised TRAs are entitled to
• Receive funding from us through the Tenant Fund
• Be represented at their local area housing forum.
• Be consulted on matters affecting the local community
Resident Associations hold regular meetings and represent their member's interests to the council and other organisations. They also hold social events, which can be a good way of getting to know your neighbours.
