The Community

The Community

Fundamental to our strategy is the key role our centres play in the ongoing development of the communities and environments in which we operate. We work closely with key stakeholders to ensure that we listen, engage and use feedback to develop or refine our approach. We aim to provide safe, welcoming, clean and attractive shopping and leisure venues where our guests choose to shop, work and socialise. We seek to make a positive contribution to each local community by being a responsible, socially aware and a proactive partner.
