FOPA aims to monitor Planning and Listed Building Applications affecting our area, and will consider commenting on any that are contentious.
FOPA is not a fundraising organisation but does have modest funds which it spends periodically to enhance the money spent on our gardens by the City Council.
In our community we have police community support officers (PCSO) Amy Green & Jessica Lee assigned. For all other reports of disturbances of all kind other than emergency the best current route for reporting is to send an email.
FOPA has had requests from members that would like to offer services to help neighbours in isolation. FOPA will then help co-ordinate a helper to a request. If you are interested in helping or if you need some help please read more

The weekend (April 24 – 27) The Living Coast is participating in the global City Nature Challenge for this first time, as part of the Nature2020 celebrations.
