The Association

Who we are and how we are organised.

There has been a Residents' Association in Billericay since 1926. It is from this foundation that the BDRA sees its main aim as giving the people of Billericay and District (Little Burstead, Great Burstead and South Green) a voice.

Over the years we have responded to many key issues such as housing, planning, the preservation of green spaces and the setting up of a Parish Council.

We are not against change but consider it important that residents are able to be involved in the decision making.
We also understand the need for more housing but feel that without an expansion of infrastructure, the transport, health and education facilities will not serve our needs and will impact on our quality of life.

Recently we have strengthened our Association by joining with the Billericay Action Group (BAG).
