The purpose of OTRA is to protect and promote the interests of the Oakmount Triangle and those who live there. Membership is open to all residents

The Oakmount Triangle

The triangle is situated in Highfield, Southampton adjacent to Southampton Common. The triangle shape is formed by Oakmount Avenue, Blenheim Avenue and Westbourne Crescent, intersected by Leigh Road. In addition to these roads, Nos 1 – 5 Highfield Road and 19 Brookvale Road are included.

The triangle was built mainly in the early part of the twentieth century by architect John Smith on the original site of Highfield House

Many of these houses still boast their original features and the triangle is now a conservation area.

The Association does not levy a subscription but raises funds when needed through social events and voluntary donations.
