Resident Associations are excellent for promoting community spirit, tolerance and cooperation amongst local residents. If you want to make a real difference to living in Napsbury Park, join the Napsbury Park Residents Association (NPRA) and be part of the community. We gain strength in joining together as an Association in the following ways:
Informing residents of their rights and helping tackle any problems they have in relation to their housing. Maintaining good relationships with the Council and its Planning Offices.
Management Company (Hurford Salvi Carr)
Social & Community
Maintaining good relations with the Management Company and their contractors, so ensuring repairs and improvements are made around the Park. This includes the upkeep of the grounds and repairs to play areas. Representing your views and communicating them to the Management Company (Hallmark Property Management), as well as keeping a track on their budgets and forecasts.
Ensuring the conservation of our beautiful parklands and supporting local campaigns which affect the surrounding area for example planning applications, schooling or traffic hazards.
Safeguarding peaceful living in conjunction with Neighbourhood Watch and the local Police. Organising social events and promoting good neighbourly relations. Establishing ways and forums for us to stay informed.
Once you join or renew online, it tell you how to pay your £10 annual household membership fee.
From 2016, NPRA membership is £10 per annum, which goes towards running social events, administration costs, hire of the pavilion for meetings, etc. as agreed by the committee.
Our accounting records are available upon request. Any Napsbury Park residents, regardless of which streets they live in, can join!
As an NPRA member you can..
- have your say by emailing the committee (Comments@NPRA.org.uk) with issues you wish us to discuss at our meetings. We also send regular email updates to members about the issues affecting the Park, social events and meeting minutes.
- join our private Facebook group to network, ask questions and get support from the community, find local services and news about NPRA activities.
- gain access to the member area of this web page, after separate registration. This area hosts meeting minutes, info about the NPRA committee members, recommended services, and more.
How do I contact the NPRA committee?
The NPRA does not support any political party and has no political agenda. It is run on a voluntary basis with no commercial interest other than issues affecting our Park. Your details will be kept on a private register and made available only to NPRA Committee Members. They will only be used in the course of NPRA business and not disclosed to others.
We urge you to join the Neighbourhood Watch & the OWL communication system which sends you the latest local crime alerts. http://www.owl.co.uk
The NPRA is a member of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations which gives us support and advice where needed. http://www.ncvo.org.uk.
