Places to Go
A thriving community can only be achieved with connections; to other people and places you use on a regular basis, like work and other facilities. Creating community spaces near our developments helps you get there and socialise regularly.
Close to where you want to be
The places you use often should be as close as possible. Being nearby not only encourages you to use such facilities regularly, it also encourages you to get there under your own steam. This works in harmony with another of our principles; to prioritise walking and cycling over driving.
Built for you
Of course, it’s not always possible to create a development near a school or other places you use regularly. This is why – on our larger developments – we often provide such buildings ourselves. Where it’s viable, we may also build retail spaces and create employment opportunities.
Ground to plate
Places to go don’t have to be far away. All our developments have public open space and some even have allotments too. Our places have been designed so that you and your family can live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, and growing your own food is part of that. Growing your own can also teach youngsters about the importance of nutrition and environmental issues.
By providing places to go and things to do we create opportunities for social interaction and contribute to a sense of community.
