St Edward understands the importance of facilitating and encouraging a new community that will become self-sustaining, with residents able to take long term ownership.
To facilitate this St Edward has created a bespoke community plan in order to help people get to know their neighbours and bring people in from local area. We want to create a community that talks.
Our experience in creating communities at our other developments, for instance Stanmore Place, has set a good precedent on how to develop a strong community. An example of the community plan can be seen here.
St Edward's collaboration with the local community will begin during the construction phase of the development, building on the extensive public consultation carried out during the planning process. Local stakeholders will be invited to the opening of our Sales & Marketing Suite, so that we can begin to build positive relationships between ourselves, local stakeholders, and residents.
We have already started to engage with schools, colleges, and universities to educate young people about upcoming employment opportunities. Additionally, we will hold social events, such as Easter Egg Hunts and Christmas Carols, in order to encourage visitors and to create a sense of community amongst residents.
We are delighted to have been selected as the lead sponsor of the Fleet Carnival in 2019, as we are keen to establish links with the wider community in Fleet and to contribute to the prosperity of the area.
We will be posting quarterly updates on the progress of the site, which can be emailed directly to you. Should you wish to receive these updates, then please feel free to register your interest here.
