Lambeth’s Tenants and Residents Association Network has a bright new website containing, the network says, a wealth of information about things ranging from grants to a directory of the borough’s 50 community halls and rooms.

The site will also promote Lambeth TRA Network evenings – bimonthly events focussing on a topic that concerns TRAs.

The next is at Clapham’s Notre Dame Estate on Monday September 21. The topic under discussion will be Repairs. Guest speakers will be Paul Webb, strategic area housing manager for Lambeth (speaking on estate walkabouts) and Andrew Jacques, head of repairs.

The site also has details of Lambeth’s plan to recruit 500 council tenants to give it “honest and open” feedback on its performance. Details here. http://lambeth.network/wordpress/

    As well as the Council’s Tenant Resident Associations, there are also many other Private Residents’ Associations who are also trying to improve neighbourhoods for their communities. I am wondering what help they are being given?
