Email updates frequently asked questions

Some frequently asked questions about the Barbican Association email list:

Can I be added to the list to receive email updates from the Barbican Association?

Yes! Anyone can join the BA email list (members, non-members, residents, non-residents…) – sign up using this online form.

Why have I not received an email from the BA since last April?

If you are a member of the BA, you may have received an email in April to invite you to the AGM. The terms you agreed to when you joined the BA allow the Membership Secretary to contact you only about:

  1. issues relating to your membership account, and
  2. to invite you to the AGM
    but nothing else.

If you want to receive other updates from the BA, you will need to give us your permission by signing up for our email list.

Why did I not receive the last email from the BA?

If you were previously receiving regular emails from the BA, you may have inadvertently unsubscribed using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the last email you received.

It’s also possible that, if you forwarded one of the BA emails to someone else, that they may have used that unsubscribe link, removing you from our list.

To make sure you are signed up to receive emails in the future, please fill in the sign-up form.

To avoid being accidentally unsubscribed in the future, please use the ‘forward to a friend’ link which will be contained in all future emails from the BA, rather than forwarding the email directly.

I’m a member of the Barbican Association, why am I not receiving emails from the BA?

The Barbican Association email list is completely separate from the membership database. The terms you agreed to when you joined the BA do not allow us to automatically add you to our email list so you will need to sign up using the online form.

The email list is also open to anyone whether or not they are a paid up member of the BA.

Why am I not receiving the extra emails with news about the Barbican Estate?

It’s possible you are thinking of the weekly emails sent out from the Barbican Estate Office (BEO).

The Barbican Association (BA) is a Registered Tenants’ Association, run for residents, by residents, all of whom volunteer in their roles.

The Barbican Estate Office is run by the City of London Corporation and is the base for many of the paid employees who manage the estate for the City, e.g. House Officers and estate engineers.

The BEO has its own email list and circulates emails on a weekly basis with practical information from The City of London about what’s happening on and around the estate.

The BA sends emails at least once a month to make sure residents are kept up to date about issues we are working on on your behalf, e.g. fighting planning proposals that will impact negatively on residents.

If you have any other questions about receiving emails from the Barbican Association, please get in touch.

And of course, to make sure you don’t miss any news from the Barbican Association, including details of residents’ meetings, make sure you’re subscribed to the email list!
