Welcome to WARA
Waltham Abbey Residents Association (WARA) acts on behalf of residents living in Waltham Abbey, we are a voluntary non-political organisation and we take this opportunity to welcome all visitors to our website. We try to help with planning issues or objections local residents may have in their local community, that may cause distress to residents if they proceed.
If you are new residents to Waltham Abbey or possibly still considering whether to move to our Historic Town,please take a few minutes to review our website, it just might help you make up your mind.
Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance we may be able to offer.
We may occasionally need to employ professionals for advice, such as Solicitors or Consultants to assist us or act on behalf of our residents. This is to ensure that whatever we may state publicly or write on a particular issue, is in fact honest, lawful and accurate. In order to employ these professionals we rely on donations to fund this work and would be grateful for any financial assistance you maybe able to offer.
