Pembroke Estate Management Board Ltd
Thank you for visiting our website. We are a unique resident led, not for profit company, the only one of its kind in the south west. Established in 1994, Pembroke EMB gained national recognition for regenerating the Pembroke Street estate in Plymouth and for laying the foundations for large scale area regeneration across the wider Devonport neighbourhood.
Once classed as the most deprived neighbourhood in the country according to Government statistics (Index of Multiple Deprivation), Devonport is now a thriving neighbourhood once more and a popular place to live and work.
Our primary purpose is to manage the housing on the Pembroke Street housing estate, carrying out all aspects of management and maintenance. We also have a strong commitment to work with the wider community to develop and deliver a wide range of projects and services.
The company originally began as a residents campaigning group in the 1980’s and secured major Government funding in the 1990’s to completely redesign and refurbish the Pembroke Street estate. Residents led in all aspects of the design process which pioneered new approaches to community led regeneration and ‘safer by design’ principles.
The residents also went much further by working in partnership with other organisations to develop ground breaking training and employment initiatives, public art projects and youth work.
More information about the evolution of the EMB can be found within the ‘The Story of the EMB’ section which includes links to further information.
