Sustainable Communities

Areas of focus

  • Community engagement
  • Architecture and biodiversity
Ensuring strong transport links in place/park and cycle
  • Provision of public infrastructure
Contributing to sustainable communities is a key feature of our approach to planning and design.

Community engagement

We take a holistic approach to understand the needs and requirements specific to every development concerning the surrounding environment, public infrastructure, and amenity. As part of this process, we engage with public bodies, local communities, and local authorities to ensure we consider all aspects of infrastructure provision, current and future. Our engagement with the community also includes considering sustainable infrastructure provision, such as EV charging points, cycle lanes, connection to public cycle lanes, and walking permeability.

Architecture and biodiversity

We consider the architecture and biodiversity of the surrounding environment to ensure we are representing this appropriately in our schemes. We aim to provide projects which fit in with the surrounding natural environment while leveraging public open space and the existing infrastructure. In the near-term, the Group will commence works on our first urban brownfield regeneration project in Dublin's Docklands. This is the first project of its type to be delivered by the Group and forms part of a portfolio of over 2,000 urban brownfield units which will be delivered by the Group over the next five years.

Ensuring strong transport links in place

As part of the placemaking process, when considering our development, we initiate a process of understanding where existing public infrastructure is located (public parks, transport links, retail business, schools, play facilities, etc.). During this process, we build in links and permeability to infrastructure nodes while also, if required, providing elements of the infrastructure ourselves if a deficit exists.

Provision of public infrastructure

As part of our commitment to placemaking, Glenveagh contributes to and provides public infrastructure as part of our development process. This may include:
  • playgrounds
  • access roads
  • public amenity areas
  • financial contributions towards infrastructure etc.
We believe it is both responsible and necessary that public infrastructure is a component of our construction methodology during our placemaking process. During this process, we build in links and permeability to infrastructure nodes while also, if required, providing elements of the infrastructure ourselves if a deficit exists.
