History of the Association

It was late in 1972 that a founder member, Mike Leopold discovered that developers were intending to submit plans to fill in Elmore Lake behind the Inn-by-the-Sea and build houses on the site.

A small group met, resulting in a steering committee being formed supported by some very influential members who saw the birth of LoSRA in February 1973. The development on Elmore Lake was successfully stopped and the lake is still there for enjoyment by all. This was the first success of many in the ensuing years representing residents and improving the environment of Lee-on-the-Solent..

In the early days the Newsletter consisted of two typed pages – how different to now with a professionally produced booklet with ten times as much information

Vision4Lee was formed in 2004, with the purpose of identifying ways to revitalise Lee-on-the-Solent economically and as a vibrant place to live. 

The two association merged in November 2008.

Historically we focused largely on representing residents needs. In the last few years we have expanded our role by providing more events for our members and the community as well as helping enhance public spaces.

The association now has about 1,000 members and is managed by an annually elected committee
