The WHRA has been quietly moving forward since the last update and here are some things we would like to share:
Firstly we have set the date for the next residents meeting so please put this in your diary:
When: Thursday 26th March 2020¬†
What time: 7.30pm¬†
Where: Waterhouse Hall (behind the United Reform Church at the top of Compton Road)
There will be more details and an agenda circulated in March.
We have been very lucky to have filled three of our remaining committee positions with very able and experienced local people:
Simon Lanyon-Hogg has joined us to oversee the planning work that the association monitors. He is an architect with a wealth of experience across many different type of projects and recently has moved his practice back to the area to focus on residential projects.
Brian Adamson has joined us to focus on crime reduction initiatives within our area and act as contact point for our local police officers. He is a retired police officer himself with many years of experience which will be of great benefit to the association and residents.
Finally Chris Ferrary has very recently joined us as the Environment representative on the committee. Chris has many years experience as a town planner, chartered environmentalist and transport planner so will be able to guide us across a number of different areas, all of which are very important and relevant to the work we are doing.
We would very much like to thank them for putting themselves forward and it is clear that alongside the other committee members we have some great minds coming together to work passionately and give up their time to drive the association forward into the new decade!
We have had concerns from local residents with questions about the new 456 bus route that they are planning to introduce. These are in addition to those mentioned in Robert Taylor’s initial response to the consultation that you can see here. (Opens in a new tab or window) We have put these additional questions to TFL who have replied, the questions and the replies can be seen here. (Opens in a new tab or window)
We have had a great response to the relaunch locally with many new members signing up since the beginning of the year but please keep spreading the word about what we are doing and let your friends and neighbours know about us and encourage them to sign up.¬†
