In May 2010, an independent residents' group in Ballinacurra
Weston was established by former committee members of the collapsed.residents'
forum, which had been set up by the Southside Regeneration Agency
(SRA) in February 2008.
The residents' forum
was established by the SRA in February 2008, but only after
the Agency had already cherrypicked residents 'reps' for the
Southside Regeneration Committee. These non-residents continue
to sit on the Southside Regeneration Committee as residents'
'reps' for the area.
The BWRA is now representative
of 95% of households.
What we Do:
In contrast to
the Regeneration Agency established forum, the BWRA is a properly
constituted and active organisation that is run by the residents
and for the residents.
- We write letters
on behalf of our members, highlighting their individual problems
to the relevant agency.
- We highlight areas
of concern to our Community; environmental issues like illegal
dumping, health & safety issues such as rat infestations
and unsecured vacant houses, and security problems regarding
anti-social and criminal behaviour.
- We are a member
of the local Community & Voluntary Forum - Our Lady of
Lourdes Umbrella Group.
