About Us

At RCA, we want to create an identity for Rockcliffe,  to further develop the sense of community that many residents already enjoy and to improve the area for all residents, workers and visitors.  We also have a heart to draw in members of the community who would not normally want to attend such meetings to represent the whole community and support vulnerable members of the local area.

Consultation

We aim to involve and consult with as many people as we can in the Rockcliffe area to understand what the people of Rockcliffe would like to change, improve or enjoy more of. The idea is we can work as a community to action the ideas people want to see happen. We have started to work on a set of objectives which will evolve as we receive peoples feedback.
