Places for People

Gilston Park Estate is being brought forward by Places for People. Below you will find some useful information about them.

Places for People is a leading affordable homes-led placemaker. We create and manage thriving communities that our customers are proud to call home and are sustainable – economically, socially and environmentally. Over 500,000 people live in our homes and 300,000 people visit our leisure centres every week.

Places for People created £165m in social value in 2021 and contacted over 65,000 customers during the pandemic, making a difference to our customers and our communities across the UK.

Our organisation’s award-winning placemaking, property investment, development and management companies are active throughout the UK. We own or manage more than 219,000 homes, operate over 100 leisure facilities, employ over 9,000 colleagues, have assets of £4.8bn, and will deliver circa 6,000 affordable homes over the next 10 years through our partnership with Homes England.

It can be shown from other major developments that our approach goes much further than simply building homes. Our Brooklands development at Milton Keynes is a great example. In addition to essential highway infrastructure, drainage and utility investment being in place, we have ensured that the people who move into this new place, already have green open spaces to walk through, as well as places to play, sit and relax.

Our products and services are socially and commercially driven. As a not-for-dividend organisation, any profit we make is re-invested back into the business.
