My son moved into a block of apartments. The builders promised they would establish a residents association but didn’t. I tried to use G+ to get people interested in buying the lease but there was little interest in signing up to G+ so I got a few email addresses. They have common interests, parking problems, bins, security systems but no easy way to gather on-line. Few people turn up for management company meetings because they take all evening.
I was thinking that something like this that would scale up from block to area to ward to council could be a basis for greater local democracy.
