The H.O.M.E Residents’ Association (RA) exists for the benefit of the residents in Havelock Road, Outram Road, Mulberry Lane, Elgin Road and Ashburton Road/Gardens/Close. It aims to preserve, conserve and improve the environment in the H.O.M.E roads as well as in outlying areas that have an effect on our area.
Everyone who lives in H.O.M.E roads is automatically a member of the RA. The RA committee meet six times a year and distribute a newsletter at least three times a year, to keep residents up to date with its activities and to invite them to social events.
Our Success Story
In 2004 there was a planning application to demolish an old Victorian house in Havelock Road and to build a block of 12 flats, boundary to boundary and stretching half the way down the garden, on the site. Many residents objected to the application and this led directly to the creation of H.O.M.E RA.
On 31st March 2008, our roads were designated part of the East India Conservation Area - as a result of objections to a planning application at 40-42 Elgin Road.

The increase of traffic in the H.O.M.E roads due to recent changes is currently our most pressing concern. For details of the current sitation, a background to the problem and how to get involved please see the Traffic Matters pages on the website.
The Addiscombe Triangle
With money donated by our Ward Councillors, over the last couple of years members of the H.O.M.E committee have planted three ornamental fruit trees and many bulbs for the community to enjoy. Volunteers are needed to help water the trees in dry weather and care for the upkeep of the Triangle. .
