Welcome letter to new residents - needs review
The Committee and Members of the Upton Park Proprietors' Association
wish to extend to you a warm welcome as a new resident to the 'Park'
and hope you will enjoy living here. Throughout the year the Park
organises several social gatherings such as Safari suppers, Jazz
nights and Christmas Eve 'around the Park' carol singing. We hope
you will join us and if you have any other suggestions
for events we would welcome your ideas.
Upton Park Proprietors' is an association of house owners in Upton Park
The Association was originally founded in 1899 and the records contain
many interesting facts about the Park and its history (gradually being
transcribed into this website).
The Association elect a Committee annually whose purpose is to organise
the maintenance and repair of roads, some drainage and grass verges.
The committee meet several times a year in order to discuss any issues
regarding the Park. Members wishing to raise points should do so in
writing to the Secretary. The Park rate is fixed at the AGM in May by
a majority vote. It is calculated on the forseen costs of maintaining
the road during the year with some reserve for the unforseen. Over
the past few years the Association has, by its efforts, greatly improved
the standards of the roads to cater for the increased use of cars
by residents and their visitors.
The Association also provides a specification for the reinstatement of
the road, which should be used by residents' contractors should any
road openings be necessitated by connections to main sewers or drains
etc.@@@@@a link to this will be established.
The Park roads, being unadopted, are not swept by the Highway Authority
and we therefore ask all residents to keep the footpath outside their
property in a neat and tidy condition and to ensure that hedges are
kept well trimmed especially where such hedges front onto the Park
Finally we are planning several events to mark the New Millenium and
we look forward to involving you in them.
