Corporate Citizenship & Environment
Wherever London Square builds, we seek to play an active part in the local community, helping charities, supporting small businesses, schools and organisations in the area.
Projects supported include assisting The Bridge community groups to apply for the Co-op's food share and grant funding scheme, helping them get a £25,000 grant. We hosted an exhibition by emerging artists as well as art class, for customers and residents with The Tannery Arts charity, who will move into purpose-built studios and gallery space at London Square Bermondsey.
We were 2022 title sponsor for London Square Open Gardens Weekend organised by the London Gardens Trust, which campaigns to project green spaces and landscapes.
The design of our developments also takes into account the local and global considerations for the environment to provide sustainable impact. At Tadworth Gardens a natural corridor became central to the scheme and we also sponsored a competition by the Surrey Wildlife Trust. At Bassetts Pond in London Square Orpington, A Site of Special Scientific Interest, we worked with ecologists to enhance the habitat for great crested newts.
