 North Summerfield Residents Association‚Äč

The North Summerfield Residents Association (NSRA) was founded in 2004 to provide an interface to the Council during the SRB6 scheme. We have worked hard in this area and seen many environmental improvements over recent years.

We meet on a regular basis, anyone is welcome, and we provide a forum to discuss our problems with our Councillors, members of the Birmingham City Council, the West Midlands Police and other local bodies. As a result, we have been able to resolve a few disputes between residents and to bring to the Council's attention situations which need to be remedied or tidied up. These meetings are also very useful for giving us early warning of proposed plans that may affect our area.

Summerfield Residents Association

In 2004, local residents of Summerfield in Edgbaston wanted to make a difference to the area in which they lived and formed the Summerfield Residents Association (S.R.A). Their aim was to make Summerfield a thriving community.

They were particularly interested in eco issues, recycling and tackling fuel poverty. The residents group took off and became actively involved with Birmingham City Council, Family Housing Association and Urban Living, a large regeneration programme in Birmingham and Sandwell. They raised any concerns they had and worked alongside partner organisations to identify ways forward. The residents group is still extremely active and continue to work hard to improve the Summerfield neighbourhood making it a great place to live.

A lot has been achieved.

For more information about the Summerfield Residents Association, please contact the Church Office.

Selwyn & Wheatsheaf Road Residents Association

The association exists to encourage residents in the two roads to know each other better and share any problems or come together for any projects that may exist. We aim to keep the organisation small scale in order to make communication easier and more successful.
