Supporting the planet through community
We’re excited to have rolled out our sustainability strategy so we can make a change sooner. As part of this plan, all of our new properties, including this one, will be whole-life, net-zero carbon. That means from the first brick that’s placed to day-to-day operation, we’re minimising and offsetting our carbon.
At the heart of The Wyldewoods retirement community will be sustainable living. We will actively promote sustainable travel with walking and cycle routes through the property that connect to the canal, city centre and stunning nearby countryside. No bike? No problem. We’ll have onsite electric cycle hire, plus EV charging points for those driving electric.
