West Hampstead Gardens & Residents Association (WHGARA) was formed in June 2011 as a response to complex and increasing environmental, planning and development pressures in the local area. Our aim is to preserve the social, economic and community assets of the West Hampstead neighbourhood.
We are independent and apolitical with strong links to other groups, the police, Camden officers and local councillors. We have contributed to the evolution of our Neighbourhood Development Forum and supported other planning action groups in the area – ie Save Swiss Cottage, Stop the Blocks, and the Confederation of Local Community Groups.
We also circulate information, advice and guidance to members about resources and where to look for help in dealing with local issues, problems and concerns. To join us please go to the membership page and we’ll be in touch with details. Don’t sit on the sidelines – Protect West Hampstead.
