about wera

WERA is the World's End Residents Association.

WERA was set up by the residents of the estate to represent the views and interests of all residents when dealing with the Council, its agents and their contractors, and ensure that residents are regularly and properly consulted on what is happening on the estate. WERA tries to foster a wider sense of community and cooperation amongst all of the estate's residents and aims to ensure that all of the estate's varied communities are properly represented and are able to participate in its activities.

Any legal resident aged 16 or over can become a member of WERA by applying for membership to the Committee of the Association. Membership can be applied for or renewed at any WERA Public Meeting or at the WERA Annual General Meeting (AGM).

WERA has a Management Committee of residents who meet once a month to discuss matters of interest to all residents of the World's End Estate. The Committee's main aim is to improve the estate and make it a better place in which to live. Any WERA member can become a member of the Committee by being nominated and elected at the WERA AGM. The Committee also plans and holds regular Public Meetings to try and keep all residents informed about what is happening in and around the estate.

If you would like to find out more, or have any issues or concerns you'd like to bring to the attention of WERA, please contact the Committee using the contact details below.

what we do

The Committee meets at least once a month to discuss matters of relevance to the estate's residents and the estate. These meetings are normally held on the third Tuesday of the month. The meetings are regularly attended by TMO staff and other third parties.

The Committee forms sub-committees or sub-groups when required. These are composed of Committee members, other residents and relevant third parties. They meet seperately from the main Committee as often as necessary and report back to the main Committee as required. There is currently one sub-committee up and running, the World's End Leaseholder Group. Other sub-committee's will be formed as necessary.

The Committee responds to all formal consultation on behalf of the estate's residents. This includes Planning Notices from the Council's Planning Department and Section 20 Notices from TMO Leaseholder Services.

Committee members represent the Association at relevant meetings of the Council, TMO, Police and other bodies. This currently includes the Council's Tenants Consultative Committee (TCC), a number of TMO sub-committees, the Police West Chelsea Sector Working Group and the "Safer Neighbourhoods" Cremorne Ward Panel.

The Committee manages the WERA Clubroom for the benefit of all residents. The Clubroom is made available to local charitable and/or not-for-profit groups whose work benefits the residents of the estate. If you are interested in using the WERA Clubroom please contact the Committee using the contact details below.
