The Linden Homes Foundation is celebrating three years since we launched as a community initiative to spread the local benefits of housebuilding beyond the construction site.
We set up the Foundation June 2012 to unite our involvement with local neighbourhoods around the country and to show the real-life benefits of housebuilding.
This website now contains more than 570 individual examples from around our regions showing the positive effect on people, communities and the environment.
The Foundation was one of the factors which this year helped Linden Homes gain recognition among the top performers in NextGeneration – a national benchmark which puts the spotlight on housebuilders for their sustainability.
Highlights have included donating materials for a farmer to build a lamb shelter; restoring a war memorial; building a hydro-electric river turbine; sponsoring sports clubs; refurbishing a cricket pavilion; and teaching safety lessons to pupils.
Linden Homes group managing director Andrew Richards said: “Our efforts towards ever greater sustainability have been recognised and our credentials are strong. But we are always striving to be better as a business and as a neighbour to the communities where we build.”
