Creating thriving communities and delivering social value is at the heart of our Group’s purpose. The homes and developments we build today will shape our landscape and communities for generations to come. Through a considered approach to placemaking, collaborative planning and stakeholder engagement, we strive to deliver high quality homes with good access to local amenities. We also aim to promote the relationship our customers have with nature by providing accessible green space wherever possible.
Placemaking goes hand in hand with delivering social value to the local community. A range of spaces are provided to suit all ages, including parks, play areas, woodland and sports pitches. We invest in local infrastructure to promote sustainable and healthy living including cycle lanes, footpaths, good access to public transport, community buildings, educational facilities and public art across our developments.
Our business operations also create socio-economic benefits through employment opportunities for local contractors, apprentices and trainees. We also support employment in our supply chain through material and labour procurement.
More information about the environmental and social measures we put in place in our homes and developments is available in our ESG Data Handbook.
Supporting health and wellbeing at More Park School
The Group sponsored the installation of outdoor exercise equipment at More Park Catholic Primary School in West Malling for the students to use and enjoy.
The new additions included cardio and resistance apparatus accessible to children aged five to 12 years old. The equipment will be used in PE lessons to support the students’ understanding of health and fi tness and will also be available to use at break and lunch times. The equipment is designed in a horseshoe configuration so that a whole class can use the space for an outdoor fitness lesson. The equipment will also be used in activities for children with a variety of needs, meaning all students across the school can make the most of the new installations.
“This donation has allowed us to not only purchase new apparatus, but choose equipment that will both excite and inspire children for many years to come on their sports and health journey.”
