Welcome to Sudbury Town Residents' Association (STRA)

STRA is a non-political, non-sectarian group that aims to encourage our community (including the shops in Sudbury Town) to work together for a cleaner, greener, and safer area in which to live. Until December 2022 we were your local neighbourhood forum and developed a Neighbourhood Plan for Sudbury details of which can be found here. For more information about our history and achievements to date click here. Volunteers are always needed to help with events and to join our committees. If you would like to join us and be involved we would like to hear from you so send us an email.

 

 If you would like to become a member of STRA, signing up couldn’t be easier. Download the STRA application form and either email it back to us or pop it in the post. The address is on the contact us page.

The date of the next meeting can be found here. The next agenda will appear on the  members page, Members will need to have their password ready.

 

At the beginning of every meeting you can apply for a three minute soap box slot where you can raise a local topic which is important to you and other residents in the area, i.e. dumped rubbish, anti-social behaviour etc.   



At our regular meetings we are happy to welcome speakers on a variety of subjects from our local National Trust group to safer neighbourhood policing, local councillors, Wembley History Society etc.   If you would like to suggest a topic please email or phone in your ideas.

Jalaram Community Centre


Several residents have approached STRA to express their concerns over a recent event at the Jalaram Community Centre and the council’s response to their concerns.


To collect more evidence, STRA has produced a survey that can be accessed via the link below. The purpose of the survey is to try and gauge the number of residents that were affected and in what way.


If you were affected by this event in any way, please help us by completing the survey.
