Welcome to Speen, Shaw & Donnington
Neighbourhood Action Group

Speen, Shaw & Donnington Neighbourhood Action Group is a voluntary organisation made up of local residents, working in partnership with representatives from Speen and Shaw-cum-Donnington Parish Councils, Newbury Town Council, West Berkshire District Council, Sovereign Housing Association and Thames Valley Police. 

The Neighbourhood Action Group deals with issues which affect local residents, such as anti-social behaviour, litter, fly-tipping, speeding, parking problems, pot holes in the roads, etc. We liaise with Councils and other agencies to ask for problems to be addressed, to discuss possible solutions, and to help solve the problem in the best way.
If you
would like to learn more about the work of the Neighbourhood Action Group, or if you would like to tell us about a problem that is affecting you, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you
