Supporting your community

We believe in supporting the local communities that host our developments so that you can share in the benefits. Wansbeck Road would bring a wide range of local social, economic and environmental benefits and we really hope that we are able to make our proposal a reality, so that we can bring those to the local community.

Local community groups close to one of our proposed or operational developments may also be eligible to apply for a grant from the Banks Community Fund. Since the fund was set up, we have awarded over £6 million in grants which have benefited over a 1,000 community groups. We were able to help Northern Gymnastics Club CIC with a £5,000 grant to help with installing a new competition standard sprung floor.
We are very excited to have received applications from Ashington’s YMCA & Sea Cadets to name just a few and we are actively looking for more groups that may benefit from our community fund so please get in touch if you think we may be able to help.
