Estate boards

Each of our ten estates has a Board made up of residents

Estate Boards meet to discuss local issues including antisocial behaviour, estate cleaning, housing and community activities and other ways to improve the area. They also give us valuable feedback on our services.

Being on an Estate Board is a great way to represent the views of your local community, meet your neighbours and help deliver community projects.

All residents can join the board, and new members are always welcome!

Estate Boards are made up of Poplar HARCA residents who act as a voice for the local community.

What does an Estate Board do?

Estate Boards work closely with Poplar HARCA to identify and tackle issues raised by the local community, such as Housing, Antisocial Behaviour, Caretaking and Estate Maintenance. They also help run community events and activities.

  • How to spend an allocated Estate minor works budget
