Providing a home for nature

As well as building beautiful homes for you to live in, we’re also committed to protecting and preserving British wildlife. To enhance the biodiversity of each of our developments, we began a unique national partnership with the RSPB, Britain’s largest nature conservation charity, in 2014.
Together, we’ve found ways to boost the wildlife value of green spaces within our developments and we look forward to welcoming nature into our communities for years to come.

Developing dream homes in harmony with nature

At a time when much of the UK’s urban wildlife is in decline, we’re proud to be taking steps to pioneer a nature-friendly approach to home building; crafting beautiful homes that enhance and support the environment.

Committed to boosting natural habitats for wildlife, we must continue to take positive steps to build nature-friendly housing developments, doing all that we can to increase the population of British wildlife.

How we're helping nature to thrive

RSPB 3
There are many ways that we encourage local wildlife to thrive in our developments. Not only do we plant an average of 20 trees or shrubs for each home that we build, we strive to use the best types for wildlife, and to retain and enhance as much green open space as possible across our communities.

We are also helping to save British wild bees by continuing to introduce bee-friendly plants across acres of gardens and open spaces within our developments.

We have worked with the RSPB to boost the number of swifts in the country. With the UK’s population of swifts in serious decline, building new homes for the birds was an important goal of our partnership. The innovative brick, which is also a nesting box for swifts, is now being installed on our developments across the country.
