How to Join the WRA

All residents of the Wildernesse Estate are encouraged to join the WRA. The vast majority of residents do so and the greater the number of our members, the stronger our voice in discussions with local councils and other bodies.

Full membership is open to all residents with detached properties on the Estate. These properties are covered by the covenants which help to protect the semi-rural character of the area. The annual subscription is currently set at £100 per household as we rebuild finances after successfully dealing with several issues which required us to obtain legal advice, which is inevitably costly. We have to maintain a reserve in case we need advice in future. Our other costs, for minor administration, running our website and our AGM, are very small.

Residents of other properties and apartments on the Estate are entitled to Associate Membership. This is currently set at £50 a year per household. This form of membership reflects the fact that these residents have a strong interest in the nature and quality of the environment of the estate, but their properties are not directly covered by the estate covenants. Associate Members have the same rights as Full Members, except that they cannot cast votes at our Annual General Meeting. The WRA Committee listens closely to the views of all members, Full and Associate.

Residents of nearby roads outside the area of the Estate are very welcome to join as Friends, currently at a rate of £30 per year. This entitles Friends to receive our newsletters and other communications, as well as attend, but not vote, at our AGM.

We ask residents to pay their subscription by direct debit, since this greatly simplifies our administration.
Our direct debit system, run through GoCardless, is protected by all the normal direct debit guarantees and you will be notified before any deduction.

To join any category of membership, residents should sign up to our direct debit system through the following link:

The correct level of subscription will be set according to your address - you do not need to choose the category.

The vast majority of members pay in this way. However, if you are not happy to use direct debit, please advise us through the contact page. Our treasurer will then provide you with our bank details to enable payment by ordinary bank transfer.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the WRA.
