When residents move in, so do we.
Cratus Communities is a ground-breaking new service. The drive to provide much-needed new homes across the country has led to increasing pressure on developers, local authorities and existing communities as they come to terms with the disruption of construction and influx of new residents.
We step in and support all parties involved to reduce that pressure, we help communities respond to change and ensure that new residents are introduced to their surrounding neighbours.
Why does this matter to housebuilders, RSLs and developers? How positive the experience of their local residents has been when it comes to delivery of new homes, promised community benefits and infrastructure is now directly influencing how local politicians consider organisations when they apply for future development opportunities.
We are witnessing a new trend whereby housebuilders associated with quality issues and / or do not work with existing communities during the build-out phases of a site in a particular local authority see that Council’s mood turn against them and their way blocked when they either seek further reserved matters approval or pursue permissions for completely new locations within that authority’s boundaries.
Our Communities team, in supporting the delivery of major new housing developments, from urban extensions and regeneration initiatives to new garden villages, takes the pressure off site management teams and improves stakeholder relationships, while at all times protecting your reputation. We can also enhance the customer experience by giving new residents a warm welcome that helps win ‘5 Star’ customer satisfaction ratings which in turn promote your business.
You build the houses, we build the communities.
