NORA was founded in 2003 by a group of town centre residents associations who were concerned about the local threat to their environment and needed advice on
- - Planning
- - Licensing
- - Traffic management
- - Car parking
- - Community safety ... and other such issues
Members come from all over England and Wales so that communication is through the internet. Members can request help from each other, which can be obtained by pooling our experience. Access to published data is via the NORA website and free to all, but only members receive an email service bringing them up-to-date information and advice on problems. New members are welcome from anywhere in the United Kingdom, and the more associations that join, the more influence we have.
