Street Representatives – 2022

The Street Representative initiative is an important network for ARRA in ensuring that each Street (or complex) in our neighbourhood has direct access and representation on the ARRA Management Committee, where important street-specific issues are addressed and followed-up effectively. In 2021, greater emphasis will be placed on reactivating the Street Rep network, which has not been active for some time in the manner envisaged for the role. Currently, there are 18 Street Rep roles, one for each street (or complex), notably:

The Street Representative acts as an ‘ambassador’ for ARRA in each street, ensuring that all residents are familiar with ARRA and are willing to support ARRA as members.  Street Reps also help in identifying the key issues of concern for residents and relaying them to ARRA for follow-up, including issues relating to:

  • Monitoring House Sales and Welcoming New Residents in the street
  • Planning & Zoning breaches, and related problems from illegal businesses, communes etc.
  • Crime & Security problems and issues, including membership of the ARRA-Quatro CSI
  • Environmental & Recycling issues
  • Service delivery issues in the street (e.g. street lights, water supply, refuse collection, street cleaning etc.)
  • ARRA Membership aspects, including new member introduction
  • Promoting Community Pride in the street (and in the wider community)

Any volunteers would be welcomed!
