We explore the importance of building sustainable communities, from both a wellbeing and environmental perspective.
Protect and support local wildlife
We strongly believe that all new developments should support local wildlife and help it to thrive. That’s why our developments provide habitats for wildlife, including bee bricks and nesting boxes for birds.
Communities that have been designed to exist harmoniously with local wildlife will enjoy a whole host of rewards. For example, bees have an important part to play in maintaining our planet and pollinating our trees and flowers, so areas with a healthy bee population are likely to benefit from a thriving ecosystem.
Promote environmentally friendly practices
New build developments that have been designed in an environmentally conscious way will support and promote better practices long term. At The Ashfield Partnership, we put a lot of effort into creating communities that aren’t dependent on motor cars.
We believe that neighbourhoods that favour pedestrians and cyclists are naturally going to be happier, healthier places to live. As part of creating sustainable developments, we ensure we make plenty of space for walkers and cyclists, while providing a good selection of amenities within walking distance.
All of these measures can help to reduce the carbon footprint of each resident which, in turn, will have a positive long-term impact on air quality.
Create cherished places of value
Developments that have been built in a thoughtful way that promotes sustainable living become places where people are proud to live and work. For many of us, living in a way that’s ethical and sustainable is becoming more and more of a priority. Communities that support and encourage this are sure to become cherished places that families can enjoy for generations.
The Ashfield Partnership comprises The Ashfield Estate and three local housebuilders who share our vision to add value to the local area. We are currently building three new developments: Luzborough, Whitenap and Hoe Lane. To find out more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
