The WPA has a membership of over 250 companies all involved in development, design and investment in Westminster’s real estate industry, or who work as professional advisers or consultants to that industry.
As an association we centre around three core strands of activity:
Advocacy – Our leadership meets regularly with local and national policy makers to express our members’ views on current issues, influence built environment policy, and seek the best outcome for the industry. We work closely with Westminster City Council, the Greater London Authority and relevant MPs, and enjoy strong collaborative bonds with other industry bodies.
Insight – We support research undertaken by our members which provides a greater understanding of the industry and future market trends. Experts and key industry figures present their research and offer their views to WPA members at our regular breakfast seminars, which take in a range of different topics annually.
Networking – We hold regular social events throughout the year at which our members can network and strengthen business relationships. These include new building launches, seasonal receptions, and our Annual Lunch in November, which is the largest of its kind for the property industry.
- Membership to the Association is corporate, with the current annual subscription sitting at £1000 + VAT per calendar year.
- Each member company nominates a senior employee as its representative for WPA purposes, however up to 5 employees are able to be involved in WPA activities, attend our events, subscribe to the monthly newsletters, and to have their voice heard by the industry and policy makers.
