Oakmount Triangle Residents’ Association

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.

AGM 2022

Yes, finally it looks like we can have an indoor meeting. We have scheduled April 2 at 7:00pm Highfield Church Hall.

We obviously don’t yet know whether COVID restrictions or guidance will change but we are keeping our fingers crossed. We will take precautions based on the current situation and ask everyone to be considerate towards others, many of whom may be vulnerable. Masks, vaccinations and a test on the day are advised. We have booked the larger of the rooms in order to have plenty of space and air.

OTRA will supply liquid refreshments (soft drinks and wine/beer). Depending on the guidelines at the time it has been suggested it may not be wise to have the usual “American Supper” (bring food to share). That may depend on what concerns we all have but if we do, everyone should be extra careful about hygiene and be aware not to use cutlery that may have already been used. Based on the Green Event we held in September I don’t think people considered it a problem then, but we will of course listen to any safety concerns. Your opinions and ideas on this are welcome so please post below.

This is a chance for OTRA to discuss what we have been up to and also get your questions and opinions on matters that concern us all – conservation, crime, parking, speeding etc. We are also looking into having a guest speaker

It’s always good to get together with residents and we will endeavour to make the committee “business” as short as possible so we can crack on with the social event. The Triangle community is very special in that regard and we like to take every opportunity to meet up and get to know each other (watch out for some more street events this year)

Please tick the box here to let us know if you can make it or not, then click on the green SUBMIT button. You will be able to change this at any time. A rough idea of numbers is very useful for use in regard to catering and setting up.

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.

It was built mainly in the early part of the twentieth century by developer 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.
