Sion Hill and Summerhill Road Residents’ Association was formed in 2019 to represent our members’ views on local issues such as planning, transport, parking, pollution and anything that affects the quality of life in our area.

We liaise with our local ward councillors, neighbouring residents’ associations and others to make sure our views are heard and to co-ordinate our responses to wider policy issues and proposals from Bath & North East Somerset Council.

We are also members of the Federation of Bath Resident Associations (FOBRA), the umbrella organisation for the residents of Bath. In the absence of Parish Councils within the city, this provides an opportunity for us to influence Council decisions from a local perspective.


Our committee currently comprises:

  • Michael Maude – Acting Chairman
  • Sally Parkes – Secretary
  • Neil Barnes – Membership Secretary
  • Ian Cutter – Treasurer
  • Patricia Ludlam
  • Joanne Johnson
  • Paul Crowsley

We are actively looking for new committee members. Please contact Michael Maude if you are interested.


SSRA currently has approximately 60 member households.

Membership is open to anyone living in:

  • Sion Hill
  • Summerhill Road
  • adjoining areas, including private roads leading off Sion Hill or the Cotswold Way footpath.

The annual membership fee is £5. This is normally due on 1st March each year, although the committee has, for the time being, decided to waive any annual renewal.

To join, please contact us and we’ll get back to you with further details.
