- Some famous residents
With the completion of the gate and the road resurfacing, a large chunk of what RMA was formed to do was achieved. Subsequent years have seen more gradual improvements. New streetlights were fitted in 1998 replacing the 3 old units that were located on the old houses together with a new light to illuminate the area just by the gate entryphone.
Further work was undertaken to provide hardwood panelling to obscure the garage rear yard opposite No 1 and planting used to camouflage the garage wall opposite No's 36 to 38.
The resident's appetite for improvements still remains strong and there are a number of further projects being considered. These are in the private members' section which is available for resident comment and augmentation.
