The Association shall endeavour to preserve the residential nature of the area, to seek improvements in the environment where desirable, and to oppose any planning applications or other activities which may, in its opinion, be harmful to the character and amenities of the Area.


The Association shall levy an annual subscription to cover working expenses, e.g. printing and postage etc. and the amount of such subscription shall be agreed at Annual General Meetings (AGM's).


A general meeting shall take place annually (AGM) for the purpose of electing a Working Committee, which will take effect not later than seven (7) days after the AGM.

The association shall be administered by a working Committee comprising Chairman, Vice-chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and at least one representative from each road in the Area. The committee shall meet at least once every two months, the Chairman having power to call ad hoc meetings when necessary, with 24-hour notice being given of all meetings. A quorum shall consist of not less than five members and no vote or decision will be taken unless such quorum is present. The Committee is to draw up the Agenda for AGM's and arrange for any speakers and/or visitors to attend.


The payments of any expenses involved in the work of the Association shall require authorisation by the Treasurer and one other Committee member. Where any legal costs or other exceptional expenses may be involved, such expense will be made known to Association members before any such disbursement is made.
