Peverel Action was set up by a group of volunteers from estates across the UK to tackle the problems we are experiencing with Peverel, and to push for changes in legislation and policy.

The aims of this website are to:

  • unite estates that are having problems with Peverel
  • create a forum for discussion and sharing experiences
  • provide information on what is happening 
If you're having an issue with any of the companies in the Peverel group, please take a moment to visit the Blog - Comments  page or get in touch.
