HRA Committee and Members

HRA Committee

The HRA Committee meets on the second Monday every month but may miss August if a quorum is not available. There is generally no meeting in the month in which the Annual General Meeting is held. Members of the Association are welcome to attend Committee Meetings as Observers and may be requested to provide information and advice. They may also table Agenda items by giving 7 days notice to the Minutes Secretary. From time to time, the Committee has a Restricted Agenda where it will be a closed meeting.

The Committee regularly liaises with other Residents’ Associations and Community groups on Planning and Licensing, plus any other matters of mutual interest. This includes The Local Authority and other statutory bodies as required. HRA plays an active part at local level in both the North Southampton Community Forum and the Southampton Federation of Residents’ Associations, plus the UK wide National Organisation of Residents’ Associations
(NORA) and the National HMO Lobby. See Links below for details of these local and national groups.

Our aim is to protect and preserve our area and city as a viable and sustainable community and a great place to live and work.
