A new Residents Association for Lower Stanmore

Press Release: 22/10/2007

Residents in Lower Stanmore will be interested to know that work is underway to form a new Residents Association in the area. The area in question will cover Cromwell Road, Stuart Crescent and the adjoining streets.

Three public meetings, to discuss the plans, will be taking place as follows:

  • Tuesday 30 October at Winchester Family Church (9.15am)
  • Wednesday 31 October at Lisle Court Sheltered Scheme (2.00pm)
  • Wednesday 31 October at Stanmore Primary School (7.00pm)

The idea behind the Residents Association is to bring local people together to identify local problems and concerns, and help to develop solutions to improve their community. Residents Associations can also act as a direct route through which to talk to both Winchester City Council and Hampshire County Council.

A successful Residents Association can help to reduce crime by encouraging Neighbourhood Watch and addressing issues such as car parking.

Residents Associations can also play a central role in helping to improve the environment, arranging activities for children & the elderly;  and planning seasonal events such as summer fetes, winter fairs and car boot sales,

If you would like to make Stanmore a better place to live and think that you could give something back to your local area, please come along to one of the three meetings being hosted by Winchester City Council.

For further information, or if you would like transport to any of the meetings, please contact David Lumby, Winchester City Council on Freephone 0800716987 or dlumby@winchester.gov.uk.
