The Cardiff Living partners aim to help to build futures for the communities in which it operates in.

The Cardiff Living Team will be holding open information sessions on all sites to update neighbours and interested parties from local communities on plans and progress. These sessions will include plans and drawings to allow communities to better understand what works will be undertaken. We will also offer regular updates into what events and activities are taking place in each local community.

Wates Residential is a proud, long-term Associate member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, and strives to be a good neighbour within the communities in which we build new homes. As part of our commitment to the communities of Cardiff, we will be communicating regularly with neighbours regarding all site related issues.

We will issue project update newsletters regularly and will host ‘open doors’ days for local residents to come to our sites, see works in progress and ask our team any questions about the projects.

Every year we will be undertaking a local community project as part of Wates’ Reshaping Tomorrow week initiative, where our project team and local volunteers give up their time to help a local community group or good cause. We will announce which project we are supporting nearer the time, but past events have included supporting a special educational needs school to provide outside classroom space, creating a sensory garden and painting and decorating community centres / sports clubs. We welcome any suggestions for future projects from the communities in which we are working.
