Brentry Park Development Management Company Ltd (BPDMCL) is run by residents for the benefit of the residents and owners. It is a small, private company limited by guarantee and is run by Gill Brooks, Mark Canwell, Craig Wightman and Lizzie Witchard. The company was set up in 2011 as a alternative to paying high fees to an existing managing agent. So far we've been pretty successful at doing this: reducing year-on-year rent charges, introducing more efficient ways to pay and streamlining the administration for collecting charges. As a result of taking ownership for the area in which we live, we've also significantly reduced the amount of 'bad debt' around the rent charges.
The company is a registered organisation which requires us to submit annual accounts with Companies House. Our company registration number is 07149427.
Other than covering the costs associated with maintaining the Brentry Park Development, we do not draw salaries for managing the company which means that we can keep rent charges as low as possible.
The ethos of Brentry Park Development Management Company is simply to:-
- Maintain Royal Victoria Park as a great place to live.
- Maintain high standards among our properties and amenity areas.
- Use suppliers who offer competitive pricing and good quality service.
- Keep rent charges low.

4. To ensure that the Amenity Areas are in perpetuity managed for the benefit of the rent charge paying freeholders and residents of the estate.
The Role of The Directors of BPDMCL
