Chantry Road & Park Hill Residents Association has been active since 1965. It represents the residents of the two roads when considering Planning Applications for the immediate neighbourhood. Also, it organises a number of social events & sporting activities each year.
The Aims of the Association are:
- To promote & encourage the improvement and conservation of Chantry Road, Park Hill and the surrounding area;
- To encourage community spirit.
All who live in Chantry Road or Park Hill are eligible to become members subject to payment of an annual subscription.
The Main Committee of the Association meets throughout the year, usually on the first Wednesday of each month. It discusses Planning Applications, oversees the income & expenditure of the Association, and provides a regular forum for discussion of local issues.
