Our Estate Boards are made up of Poplar HARCA residents who act as a voice for the local community.
What do Estate Boards do?
Estate Boards work closely with Poplar HARCA to identify and tackle issues raised by the local community, such as Housing, ASB, Caretaking and Estate Maintenance. They also help run community events and activities.
Estate Boards meet to consider:
- How services are being delivered
- How services can be improved
- Future plans, projects and initiatives
- How to spend an allocated Estate minor works budget.
How do Estate Boards run?
Members of each Estate Board (including a Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson represent the views and interests of Poplar HARCA residents. They are governed by a set of rules that outlines the aims and objectives of the Board and how it is run.
