Battersea Fields Residents Organisation Ltd. (BFROL) is a residents’ led democratic organisation, established in order to improve and provide an effective and quality Housing Management service for those living on Battersea Park Estate.
The BFRMO* is an Industrial and Provident Society, registered with the Registrar of Friendly Societies and is a not for profit organisation. In return for a £1 share for life, all tenants and leaseholders who live on Battersea Park Estate can become members.
A share in the BFRMO entitles you to attend open General Meetings, to vote and be elected to the Board which is responsible for running the organisation.
The responsibilities of the BFRMO are laid down in the management agreement (MMA) between Wandsworth Borough Council and ourselves.
Information and full details of the MMA and the rules by which the BFRMO must abide as an Industrial and Provident Society are available on request from the Housing Manager at BFRMO Housing Office; all residents have the right to view the MMA.
General Meetings are held every three months. These meetings are open meetings for members to take part in the decision making process. Annual General Meetings are held once a year and present an opportunity for Board members, in accordance with the constitution, to put themselves forward for election by the membership. Members are always welcomed and encouraged to stand for the Board.
It is the democratic right of members to take an active part in the decision and policymaking process. If you have ideas on how to improve our policies and estate you can either come along to a meeting or write to the Housing Manager or the Secretary of BFRMO. Your ideas and proposals will then be discussed at the General Meeting.
*BFRMO is the operating name.
