Watmos Community Homes was set up in 2003 by eight Tenant Management Organisations in Walsall. Three TMOs in Lambeth joined in 2012, aiming to get the same security and protection for tenant management. Watmos has a tenant majority on its board nominated by the TMOs, so the needs and wishes of residents are reflected in governance and plans. The board delegates decisions about local service delivery to the TMOs to maintain a high quality of service and local accountability.
The Ethelred TMO Committee have been considering redevelopment of parts of the Ethelred estate, and have held initial consultations locally.
How we’re helping
We have advised on community engagement and the role of local community leadership in taking the project further, and have helped to set up a steering group with Terms of Reference. We funded initial capacity studies and advised the group in the selection and briefing of architects.
