Working for the Lady Bay Community

The Community Association brings together the residents of Lady Bay and the local authorities, plus voluntary and other organisations, in a common effort to improve the conditions of life for residents.  It has been active since 1973/4.

Public meetings are held twice a year, committee meetings four times a year and a Newsletter is issued every six months.  See below for current committee members, the Constitution of the Association and links to minutes of public meetings.

Several subgroups operate in liaison with the Community Association, including FIELDS (when active), Open Gardens, the Community Fund and the Community Liaison Group (see below).  They also assist with some (but not all) of the various activities under Lady Bay in Action.

Here is the latest update from the Autumn newsletter.

Lady Bay Development Plan

Localism, Community and Neighbourhood Development Report

Supported by the Lady Bay Community Association, a research project has been conducted by James Tangen, a doctoral candidate in the School of Sociology and Social Policy of the University of Nottingham.

The report is intended to fulfil three aims:

  1. To provide an overview of the Localism Act 2011 and to highlight areas that may be significant for the future role of that Lady Bay Community Association.
  2. To provide an up-to-date statistical profile of the Lady Bay in an attempt to identify key features of this unique community.
  3. To present the findings of a consultation with Lady Bay residents that provide an indication of how they view their community, and how they would like to see it develop in the future.
