Clapham Area Housing Forum: Thurs 17 November 7pm

Come along to the Clapham Area Housing Forum

Thursday 17 November 7pm-9pm
at Clapham Methodist Church Hall

to meet, talk and plan with Lambeth Officers, TRAs and Residents
all things to do with your Lambeth housing needs.

The Clapham Area Housing Forum represents 1336 properties – are you one of them?
If so we need your voice.

Whether you represent your street property or estate in an official capacity
(e.g. TRA representative) or a resident who is an interested party – all are welcome to come along!

The meeting is a collaborative forum between officers of Lambeth Council and residents of the area – have your chance to be part of our changing housing landscape.
So if you live on the following estates or street properties, come along – or encourage neighbours to come if you can’t make it.

Meetings are held every 3 months – though this is likely to be the last Area Housing Forum in its current format before it transitions into the new Lambeth structure of “Area Boards”. Area boards will have resident and TRA representation (e.g. 12 TRAs and 3 reps from properties where there are not TRAs) which are nominated by TRAs. If you are interested in being part of the new meetings – please come along.

Estates: Ascot Court Estate, Bowlands Road Estate, Brighton Terrace Estate, Edmundsbury Court Estate, Nelsons Row Estate, Solon Estate, William Bonney Estate, Weir Estate, Thornton Gardens, Poynders Gardens, Sinclair Estate.

Street Properties: Acre Lane, Ashmere Grove, Balloter Road, Bedford Road, Bythorne Street, Cato Road, Clapham Park Road 177-185 (odd), Clapham Park Road 191-205 (odd), Concanon Road, Corrance Road, Ferndale Road, Glendall Road, Hetherington Road, Kenwyn Road, Kepler Road, Nursery Road, Plato Road, Sandmere Road, Santley Street, Shannon Grove, Solon New Road, Solon Road, Tintern Street, Tremadoc Road, Trinity Gardens, Tunstall Road.

    On Thursday, at this meeting, we had 4 officers, 2 councillors, the two co-chairs and 1 other resident attend.
    With only 1 resident, we had to call the meeting off. Our previous meeting did not have the statutory minimum number of delegates – it was minuted, but was not considered ‘official’ by Lambeth Council.

    We really need more delegates to come along to these meetings.
    If you are a TRA official, please check:
    • do you have 2 delegates assigned to attend these meetings? (they don’t have to be your TRA committee members)
    • are your delegates attending – do they know when the meetings are, are they receiving the agenda and minutes
    • is your TRA properly constituted – have you had an AGM in the past year and did you have your accounts approved?

    If you’re struggling with any of these things – please get in touch, as we would like to support you.
    If your current delegates can no longer attend – please select alternatives at your next residents meeting.
