New Eltham Residents' Association  was founded in 1930. It is a non-political association that looks upon local issues with impartiality and non allegiance.  The current chairman is Robin Clark and the President is Clive Efford the current local Member of Parliament (Eltham Constituency).
As a pressure group for the residents of New Eltham we tackle local issues and concerns and liaise with local Council and Parliament.
Issues such as local police monitoring, building development, traffic watchdog and problems and local transport services are just a few of the wide ranging subjects and problems which are dealt with on a day-by-day basis.
The committee comprises local residents, local businesses, councilors and the local MP. The organization rests solely on the efforts and enthusiasm of volunteers and interested residents. Committee Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm at All Saints Church Hall, off Bercta Road SE9.
Annual membership costs only a minimum of £3.00. To join, pay by credit or debit card via PayPal (see box at right of page) or send a cheque made payable to New Eltham Residents' Association with your contact details to the Chairman:
Mr R Clark 194 Green Lane
New Eltham London SE9 3TL
020 8857 2990.

Safer Neighbourhoods Team
Our Coldharbour and New Eltham team consists of police officers and police community support officers (PCSOs) and we are dedicated to making your neighbourhood a safer place to live in, work in and visit. We listen and talk to you, and find out what affects your daily life and feelings of security. Our priorities are then set by the local community and we work with you and other agencies to find a lasting solution. You can contact us via e-mail or phone. As part of the policing pledge we will respond to every message directed to us within 24 hours. However, we are not a 24-hour response team, so if it is an emergency please call 999.

We are based at 60 William Barefoot Drive, Eltham SE9 3HU and open Wednesday 7-8pm, Thursday 7-8pm, Saturday 2-3pm (or if shutter is up we are there). Main phone number: 0207 161 9521
