The most important work you and I ever do will be within the walls of our own homes – Harold B Lee
A new home opens a new chapter in your story. It’s where you’ll become part of a place and take on the world with a fresh perspective.
A home is much more than just bricks and mortar, it’s also the community that surrounds you. We believe it’s important to bring people together and connect our developments with the wider local area.
That’s why we choose to build our homes in places that have great access to public services, employment, education, health, leisure, shopping, restaurants, parks and the countryside. As well as creating outdoor spaces that foster community interaction, and safe areas for children to play together, we build strong relationships with authorities, neighbouring communities, and local businesses.
Whether that’s sponsoring local sports teams, working closely with education providers, or using our construction projects as skills training grounds for local apprenticeships, we want new and existing communities to flourish.

“We are really keen to build links with local clubs, especially clubs which play a vital role in bringing communities together while also teaching residents fantastic new skills.”
As part of our purpose to change places and create better futures, it’s so important for us to get involved with the communities we work in and to support local projects – Dave Smith, Managing Director
Our commitment to the environment
We want to effect positive change in the places we build our homes and that means taking care of the surrounding area, as well as the variety of wildlife that calls it home. To help us achieve this, we’ve made a commitment to enhance the biodiversity and reforestation of all our schemes, reinforcing our commitments towards carbon reduction.
Tree planting is recognised as one of the most engaging and environmentally friendly activities we can take part in to help our planet.
As well as being beautiful to look at, trees provide long and short-term benefits for our communities. They enhance air quality by removing and storing carbon from the atmosphere, and slow heavy rain which helps reduce the risk of flooding. That’s why we plant new trees on all sites, in turn creating natural green spaces for all our residents to enjoy.
Our work isn’t just about the creation of homes, but to help create and support the community – Will Bayston, Senior Development Manager
