Greenfields Residents Group

Greenfields Residents Group

Our new Greenfields Residents Group is made up of volunteers with the power and funding to introduce real improvements to the communities they call home. Find out how to get involved below.

What is the Greenfields Residents Group?

It is what it sounds like: a group of Greenfields residents who volunteer to work together and tackle issues and introduce improvements in the communities they live in.

The group is divided into three committees, North, Mid and South, which between them cover all of the towns and villages we serve.  They meet monthly in Braintree, Witham and Halstead before joining together as one for a meeting every three months.

Each committee has an opportunity to identify improvements needed in your local area – with other residents’ input – and they have a budget to enable these improvements to happen.

They can include:

  • Parking projects
  • New benches
  • New bins
  • Clearer signage
  • Improvements to lighting.

Open meetings are held in our communities each year, which provide an opportunity for residents to come along and suggest future projects.

As a Greenfields Residents Group member, you can also be involved in other activities. These include:

  • Linking up with our Community Voices, who monitors and voice residents’ interests, needs and concerns
  • Taking responsibility for updating noticeboards in your community
  • Receiving online training teaching you how Greenfields operates and the best ways to bring about changes your community needs
  • Getting regular updates about how Government changes will affect residents and regular visits at monthly meetings by Neighbourhood Co-ordinators
  • Consult with residents to fund and deliver improvements to communities.
