As part of our plans to make RARA a more effective organisation, we are looking to make changes to the constitution.
If you would like to contribute to a review of the constitution then send us your comments.
Adopted at the AGM on 27th July 2007
Our constitution is our primary governing document. It sets out RARA’s objectives, how we operate as an organisation and how we manage our finances.
The constitution can only be changed if a majority of RARA members agree to the changes at an AGM or a special meeting.
The name of the Association shall be the Risborough Area Residents Association.
To help the residents living in the Risborough Area (see below for definition of the area covered) protect and enhance both the natural and developed environment and the provision of public services and amenities
To represent independently the views of residents on any significant issues concerning the natural and developed environment and the provision of public services and amenities
To consider the views of local residents and, where appropriate, local community associations, conservation societies, town and parish councils. In addition, if applicable, to consider the views of other similar organisations e.g. the Campaign to Protect Rural England, and the Chiltern Society without infringing their right to independent action
To access and seek to influence key representatives in both national and local government and in the media so that the views of residents can be readily communicated and the Association consulted on behalf of residents, where appropriate
