Tenants' Associations & Street Voices

What are they?

Tenants'/residents' associations and street voices are a vital link between the local community and the council. They take up issues that can improve the community and estate environment.

Where are they?


There are currently the following tenants'/residents' associations within the Borough, constituted and recognised by the Council:

  • Four Groves Community Association
  • Ormsgill Youth & Community Association
  • North Walney Residents' Association
  • Devonshire Residents' & Tenants' Association
  • Raglan Court & Corporation Terrace Tenants' & Residents' Association
  • Hindpool Community Association
