Your main point of contact for all matters regarding the maintenance of the Estate, James Periton, the Estate Manager
James Periton who qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1997, has been the Estate Manager since 2008. Prior to his appointment he spent 15 years with a local Estate Agent specialising in all aspects of residential property. He reports to the Wentworth Estate Roads Committee regarding maintenance and planning applications for developments on the Estate. Over two spells he has lived in Virginia Water for over 35 years
In 1962 with the majority of the development of the Estate complete, a private act of Parliament was promoted to move maintenance of Estate common areas and enforcement of Estate covenants from the hands of the development company Wentworth Estates Ltd. into the hands of local residents. The Wentworth Estate Act 1964 established the Wentworth Estate Roads Committee to own and maintain the roads and other common areas of the Estate and to monitor and enforce compliance with Estate covenants. Following lengthy negotiations, on 31 July 1964, the Wentworth Estate Act 1964 was passed.
For maximum transparency, the WERC happily provides meeting minutes to all road rate paying residents of the Wentworth Estate who request them. You must be a Road Rate payer and have a created an account on this website to access the meeting minutes.
