Transport and connectivity

Location can play a key role in deciding where to live. We help our customers to make the right choice in relation to the location of the site by providing a range of information in site-specific literature, known as My Space. The document is held in the sales office for potential customers to view, so they can decide for themselves whether the location is right for them.

Specific data may include details of public transport (bus and trains), the location and contact details of services such as local libraries, doctors and dentists, and distances to motorway links. Sustainable transport links can be a deciding factor when purchasing a new home and many of our sites are within 500 metres of a public transport connection and, where space allows, we provided cycle storage in homes.

Our company car policy was recently reviewed and as part of the new scheme employees are able to select from a range of vehicles, including low emission and hybrid cars, helping to reduce their CO2 emissions and maximise their fuel efficiency.
