The North Loose Residents’ Association was formed in 2003 to fight a proposed Tesco development for a superstore which was eventually withdrawn.

Over the years the NLRA has become a significant force with its membership passing the 1,000 mark in 2012.

It worksclosely with South Ward councillors to achieve the best results possible from planning applications and residents’ concerns.

General Data Protection Regulation 2018

The NLRA holds personal information on each member as follows:

Telephone numbers
Email address

Our legal basis for holding and processing this data is our legitimate interest as a membership organisation and the reason we hold this information is to enable us to administer our membership records and activities.   We use this information to provide our members with our newsletter, offer social activities and any other local information we consider relevant and useful.

We do not share this information with any other person or organisation.

If you are content with the information that we hold and how we currently contact you then you do not need to do anything.   Unlike other organisations who may have contacted you recently, due to the NLRA’s position as a membership organisation we do not need you to grant consent for your information to be used for the purposes stated, and you do not need to reply or complete any forms.

You only need to take action if you specifically want to change something, in which case please contact the Membership Secretary or a member of the committee.

Membership – How to Join

Membership is open to any household in the area on payment of the annual subscription due on 1 April each year.

Membership is £10 per annum per household, as agreed by members at the AGM in March 2017..

To join simply click on the application/standing order form opposite and print the form.

Once you have completed the form please return it in an envelope, with your subscription, to the Dolly Tub, Boughton Parade or hand it to any committee member or your local collector.

Many of our members now pay their fee by annual standing order and we hope to encourage more to do so. Remember that with standing orders, YOU are in control – you can cancel it any time you wish.
