Sustainable Communities

It is vital we engage with local communities to ensure our developments meet the needs of local people. Community engagement is integral to the journey, from planning right through until site completion.

Green measures build up to make positive impact

Our philosophy of sustainable housebuilding is on show with a string of green measures at developments in our South West region.

As well as focusing on brownfield sites such as at Boslowen in Camborne, Home @ Heartlands in Redruth, and Emerge in Devonport, we use timber from sources certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, build with recycled aggregates, and re-use soil on site to cut the lorry miles transporting material.

The flora and fauna get looked after too: at Boslowen and Emerge we’ve installed special boxes to give bats and swifts a place to live, while at Kings Gate, Kingsteignton, these will be joined by a wildlife area and pond.

The construction teams are encouraged to join the sustainability drive, with bicycle racks installed to make it easier to cycle to work, plus energy saving measures in site cabins and water saving facilities in the on-site toilets.

Nigel Palmer, managing director at Linden Homes South West, said: “There’s no instant answer to sustainable housebuilding – it’s about bringing that attitude to everything you do to create a cumulative positive impact. That’s what we’re doing and will continue to do.”
