The West End of Lincoln is an historical part of the city which stretches from The Avenue, to the East, along Yarborough Road (lower side), down Aldermans Walk to the fossdyke and back along the canal path, up Holmes Road, Carholme Road and back to The Avenue, including the whole of the West Common.

The West End Resident’s Association (WERA) was formed in 1999 after many residents became concerned that the make-up of the community was being altered by developers buying too many properties to turn into student accommodation. Since its formation a lot of good work has been done by the Association, not only for its long term residents, but also for our student population.

We hold up to four public meetings a year, which are open to all residents, and we would ask if anyone has any concerns regarding the area to come and attend the meetings and let us know. These meetings will be advertised in advance on our website and also by posters displayed around the area.

We also have a committee meeting about every 6 weeks, so if there is anything that you wish us to consider about anything relating to the West End then please contact us, via the form on this site. Alternatively, you can email us at

Our Committee is also represented on the Carholme Community Forum and the Commons Advisory Committee to represent your views.
