What the FRA do
The Fisheries Residents Association has 3 main aims
- To maintain the roadways in a safe state, so as to protect the Private Street status (excepting for the Rushes, which has been adopted).
- To make representations to the Council and to the Environment Agency on planning applications and matters affecting the environment and nature of the Fisheries Estate.
- To encourage residents of the estate to meet socially to share views, knowledge and experiences to the benefit of the Estate.
The FRA Committee work to maintain all the private roads within the Fisheries estate in a safe state. This covers Avenue Road, Church Road, Glebe Road and Fishery Road.
The Rushes has adopted road status.
To make representations to the Council and to the Environment Agency on planning applications and matters affecting the environment and nature of the Fisheries Estate.
Every five years, the FRA organises a survey of roadside trees within The Fisheries estate, to establish their condition, and to use as a basis for recommendation works required to the trees. The cost of the survey is met by the Association, but the cost of doing the work necessary for the health and safety of the trees, is the responsibility of the verge-owning householder.
Note: If a tree has been notified as being unsafe, it is the property owner’s duty to have it treated promptly, otherwise their own insurance cover will be invalidated.
Over the years the Fisheries Residents Association Committee has coordinated several different forms of social functions, ranging from a summer street party BBQ, a quiz night, to carol singing at Christmas. These are only arranged by popular request, and the demand has changed over the years. Any ideas are welcome, but events are clearly limited by both numbers wishing them to take place, and sufficient volunteers to help organise them.
All members of the FRA also receive Social Membership of Maidenhead & Bray Cricket Club through their FRA subscription.
