|About the Residents' Association|
|The Trumpington Residents' Association was founded in 1992. The original scope was Paget Road, Foster Road, Byron Square and Monkswell but membership was subsequently extended to the whole of Trumpington. In October 2008, the Association was established as a company limited by guarantee. In October 2010, it was entered in the Register of Charities.
The aim of the Association is to make Trumpington a better place for the future, by working to maintain and improve the quality of life of local residents. The Association is apolitical, encouraging input from everyone involved in Trumpington.
The Association has been working with the City, District and County Councils and developers to achieve the highest quality in the new housing, community, education and transport initiatives in the area. We are actively involved in the design of the new developments on Clay Farm, Glebe Farm and Trumpington Meadows and welcoming their new residents into an enlarged community. These developments include 3700 homes, primary schools, a secondary school, community facilities and country parks.
Having welcomed the approved developments, we are strongly against the latest proposals for a 'sporting village' and 400 additional homes and will resist the threat of further development in the Southern Fringe.
