History & Background

RoMRA was set up in July 2008 from a three year old informal residents committee. The formal Residents Association subsequently received official recognition from the Landlord on 18 September 2008 after an organised ballot of all leaseholders.

Since then, the Association and its membership has played an active part in the local development issues of the Ancoats Urban Village, interacting with the Ancoats Urban Village Forum and with other tenants and resident associations in the area as well as regional development organisations.
