Development with Care

Our development with care approach is at the heart of all we do; it embodies the Banks Group’s values.

Development with care means we work with the local community in which our projects are located. It also means we want to ensure our employees are treated properly – safely, well trained and with respect – so they can do a good job and enjoy their work. Development with care is very much integral to our corporate responsibility (CR) approach and work.

Our development with care approach ensures that we conduct our activities in a responsible manner with consideration for the environment, for local communities in which we operate and for our customers, employees and suppliers.

We aim to develop our business by continuously improving our environmental performance, by using sustainable practices and by building and maintaining positive relationships with our stakeholders. By proactively meeting, talking with and getting to know the local people where our developments are going to be, we are able to take their feedback into account when designing our schemes.  This helps to us to ensure that each development we put forward is of the highest standard possible and as sensitively as possible.

We recognise that our developments provide an opportunity to make significant changes to the environment and to society and that it is our responsibility to optimise the positive environmental, social and economic benefits and minimise any adverse impacts associated with our business.

We are firmly committed to development with care ensuring that we develop high quality, sustainable projects and not only comply with all but strive to exceed regulatory requirements.
