JERICHO COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Membership of the JCA is free, and anyone can apply to join. Full voting members, however, have to live in Jericho. Jericho is defined by the land bounded on the west by the east bank of Castle Mill Stream, on the north by Walton Well Road, on the east by Walton Street and on the south by Hythe Bridge Street, the boundary being formed by the middle of the roads. There are three main types of membership:
Application for membership There is no charge for membership. Application may be made in the following ways:
Duration of membership Membership will last for three years Members will be reminded two months before their membership expires and will be invited to renew. If they fail to respond, the membership will automatically expire. For further information, please see: JCA Membership Management Policy JCA Constitution
Cranham Street used to be a blot on the city
Before Grantham House was built, the site became notoriously derelict, making Cranham Street according to the local press a ‘blot on the city’ – wrecked by local children, and a refuge for rats and for ‘layabouts sleeping off the drink’ who were repeatedly evicted by the police.
Who owns the houses?
In Jericho in 2011, only 21% of households were owner occupiers. Instead, many more people rented their homes: 58% from private landlords and 20% from ‘social’ landlords, mostly the City Council.
