LRBRA - La Rose Blanche Resident's Association

The La Rose Blanche park is managed by the La Rose Blanche  Residents' Association established under French Law. These management rights are contracted to the LRBRA by the owner of the site -Stewart Cook, whose title over the land is registered in France.

Under French law the LRBRA must have a Committee consisting of a President, Secretary and Treasurer.  These positions are mandatory and cannot be changed.

Additional positions are optional.  LRBRA Statutes currently include two optional elected positions - Clubhouse Steward and Peoples Liaison Representative.

These positions can be changed if members of the Association vote to change the Statutes.

These positions and the right to vote are limited to paid up members - currently Euro 10.00 per person each year. However, by law. the LRBRA represents all residents of La Rose Blanche.

2017 Annual General Meeting 

As part of the AGM hustings and on taking Office I and the incoming Management Committee introduced a number of measures to improve the way La Rose Blanche is governed. Namely:

  • To incorporate a Charter which attempts to set out some principles by which La Rose Blanche and its residents govern themselves - a shared SPIRIT for the site and all its residents.
  • To incorporate Mandate a 2017/18 which encapsulates the overall direction, promises and priorities of the elected Management Committee for the year ahead. 
  • To improve transparency through greater participation through volunteer sub-committees or work groups established to monitor, coordinate efforts and advise the Management Committee on matters relating to Finance & Regulation (including processes), Safety & Community (including important relations with the local community and Council),  Utilities and Amenities (including this website). 
  • To review all processes by which we govern ourselves, e.g. disciplinary processes (unfortunately we must have them in any community), communication protocols i.e. how we talk to the world as in this website and to each other, Noise regulations, etc., to ensure fairness and equity; reason, impartiality and above all - common sense.
  • To improve transparency through the publication of a monthly President's Report and to subsequently publish the report online along with the minutes of sub-committee meetings.
