Countryside Properties has been at the forefront of design, place making and sustainable development for many years. We seek to create added value through them and we have learnt much from our extensive experience, particularly at a number of landmark projects.
‘Thinking beyond today’ articulates our vision, which is to generate attractive returns by creating outstanding places for people to live, work and enjoy. Whether we are regenerating existing neighbourhoods or creating new communities we engage with our stakeholders to develop sustainable places with their own distinctive character and identity.
Our objective is for all our developments to be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable and wherever commercially possible to comprise a balanced mix of tenures, uses and densities.
The Group has a pioneering vision and strong key values.
Our commitment to sustainable development is evidenced by the fact that we have reported on our sustainability performance for the last eleven years, which is the longer than anyone in our peer group. Our Sustainability Report provides information on our performance against our objectives over the five years since 2007 with an accompanying commentary. For the first time we also report on our compliance to the Global Reporting Initiative.
Moreover, we are committed to sustainable development specifically in relation to the continued comprehension of new and emerging policies, legislation and reporting standards. This leads to the systematic application of sustainability issues in the Group’s practices and risk management procedures. We believe this approach enhances operational cost efficiency and an increased asset value for our customers, housing association partners, commercial organisations and other stakeholders.
