The BURGES ESTATE RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION (BERA) is one of the largest residents associations in the country. BERA encompasses households on the Burges Estate and surrounding areas, including Thorpe Ward, West Shoebury and north of the railway line. 

The Residents? Association is your forum to express your views on your community. In the past, we have looked into topics such as the proposed development of the Golf Club, unsuitable planning applications and residential covenants. As a collective voice, the residents of Thorpe Bay and its surrounding areas form a stronger group and we have been successful in many areas.


We would very much welcome your input and are always looking for new members to join BERA.
Why not make a comment on our Comments Page and tell us what you think? 

Membership is only £10 per year, per household. BERA send out quarterly Newsletters and host full membership meetings once or twice per year. 

For details of the next meeting, please watch out for your Newsletter, or check this site.
