FAQs

The Residents’ Association (RA) Constitution requires us to have a Management Committee, elected by RA members. Eight Officers were chosen by their fellow St Clements residents through a vote in April 2019. Meet the team here.

All RA Management Committee meetings are minuted, and you can find all the details here. You will need to be an RA Member to access these meeting minutes – you’ll receive a password by email if you are signed up. If you aren’t a Member but think you still need access, please email scram[at]stclementsbow.co.uk to request it.

We also publish regular news and updates over on the blog (check back regularly for the latest info) and will send out an RA newsletter to residents on a quarterly basis.

Please note that the St Clements Residents’ Association was founded by residents, for residents. However it does not have the legal power to enforce any changes to how the site is managed at present – this is the domain of the Managing Agent, FirstPort, who are under contract to the developer, Linden Homes.

However, a legal Residents Management Company (RMC) will be set up following practical completion of the St Clements site (i.e. when Linden Homes steps away), expected in 2020. This legal entity (‘St Clements Site Management Company’) will be a non-profit making company formed to enable residents of St Clements to undertake the management of the site for themselves. It is at this point that decisions about property management companies and other services can be made.

The current RA will, however, continue to push for positive change and community engagement at St Clements.
