Annual General Meeting of the Sudbury Town Residents’ Association – May 2018
The Sudbury Town Residents Association (STRA) had its AGM on 29th May, where plans to deliver a ‘cleaner, greener, safer Sudbury’ featured strongly at the meeting. We have taken many of these issues raised up with the Council and other relevant decision-makers.
On the evening of Tuesday 29th May, we attended the Sudbury Town Residents’ Association’s (STRA’s) Annual General Meeting to hear from residents about their concerns. The local MP Barry Gardiner was also in attendance, as was Brent Council leader Councillor Mo Butt.
Looking forward to tonights AGM with @SudburyTown
Amazing how much you can achieve personally by getting involved in your local communities #ResidentsAssociation

We’ll be taking action to act on many of the points raised at the meeting, including by:
- Supporting applications for grants for STRA’s ‘greener sudbury’ and ‘sudbury in bloom‘ initiatives, and helping raise awareness of the funds available to residents
- Continuing to support the ‘greener Sudbury’ initiative by attending litter picks and making sure the Council, Veolia and others carry out bin collections, street cleans and enforce laws against illegal dumping
- Supporting the police in tackling crime and anti-social behaviour in the area, including by attending police walkabouts
- Fighting for better transport links to the Sudbury & Harrow Road station – a key driver of anti-social behaviour in the area. Barry Gardiner MP will be arranging to get Parliamentary Questions tabled about Chiltern’s service here (we will update you on anything further we hear)
- Contacting the Council to get improved bins in the area. Most of Sudbury’s bins are black and have no recycling facility. The solitary exception is some recycling bins outside Sudbury & Harrow Road station, but these are often full and there is no bin for glass bottles. There is potential for us to get funding to replace the bins with better recycling facilities – watch this space for updates
As always, contact us if you have any issues to report and sign up to receive regular email updates if you’d like to hear more.
