Tenants and Residents Associations

A Tenants and Residents Association (TARA) is formed by a group of residents living on an estate or area who come together to make their local area a better place to live.

TARAs gives residents more say in how their estate is run and allows them to work with us to find solutions to issues affecting their area.

Forming a TARA can bring many advantages for you and your neighbours, including:

  • providing an effective way to make your views known to us and other organisations
  • developing a good community spirit, helping you to get to know each other
  • offering an opportunity to suggest how we make improvements in your local area

We have helped groups in locations such as Church Gresley, Etwall, Findern and Weston-on-Trent with funding towards setting up and running costs.
