Engaging with Management and Community

PETRA is a tenants management organisation in Havering, East London. They assumed responsibility for local housing management from Havering borough council in 2003 and are responsible for the upkeep and development of three tower blocks and 146 flats.

Cocreate partnered with PETRA to help them find ways to save energy and money on the estate. Money is a strong motivator and we aim to get the tenants, Council, contractors, and other specialists to work jointly in finding simple, home-grown, lasting solutions to help residents come together in the running of their estate – and gain the benefits from saving energy.
