Windmill View – Lambeth’s TRA of the month!

The latest Tenants’ and Residents’ Association Newsletter from Lambeth Council’s Housing Department is out. It features news for TRAs and training offers, alongside the regular ‘TRA of the month’ feature. This month the featured TRA is Windmill View TRA, covering Loats Road, Bowater Close, Claudia Jones Way and some properties on Lyham Road.

One of our recently re-launched TRAs is Windmill View on Lyham Road, Brixton.

They’ve been meeting in the local youth club to get themselves re-registered and constituted. The following was taken from the chair of the TRA, Sonia Bailey, report to the AGM which we think encapsulates why TRAs remain fundamental to our engagement.

“We want to take the TRA forward fully membered and hope to attract persons who share our vision we have to ensure we maintain a community and environment where residents can live a clean, fear-free and safe life with respect for each other.”

The TRA have had their work cut out with major works and anti social behaviour issues which have been successfully resolved working with the Housing office and Police. The TRA are now looking to brighten up some of the play areas on the edge of the estate with a project involving the estate children.

Welcome back Windmill View!!
