We aim to support biodiversity at every step in all our developments. When pre-planning, we assess areas for sensitive ecosystems to ensure they are protected and enhanced plus continue to work closely with local authorities throughout the planning process to protect ecosystems and create zones that promote biodiversity.
How we support sustainability
How we invest in sustainability
This year, we plan to have each development sewn with Wildflower Seed; a seed most commonly affiliated with farming areas, and our aim is to reintroduce this feature throughout all our developments. Once the seed is sewn, we will manage the process and its growth until the meadows become self-sufficient and almost maintenance free.
We host Planting Days with local resident participation as part of our overall community engagement programme.
Last year with our support, the Taylor Hill Residents Association created a project called “The Pollinators’ Walk” - a pollinator-friendly corridor at the southern entrance of the estate. The project was subsequently chosen as a winner of the “Communities4Environment” competition run by Fingal County Council.
Aid ESG initiatives
At Glenveagh and in line with our approach to ESG, we consider where the house lives as well as where people live. It is important to us that our developments reflect the local built environment. Rather than create monocultures, we have evolved a variety of layouts suited to higher and lower density sites while being cognisant of “placemaking” within our developments.
Foster Environmental Stewardship
We strive to continually improve engagement with local communities, enrich the lives of our residents and ensure a lasting legacy for years to come in areas where we build.
Blooming Native are delighted to work with Glenveagh on creating wildflower meadows and biodiversity initiatives in their developments to help connect residents and their families further in the nature that surrounds their communities.
