Our approach is that consideration should be given to the relationship of an asset to the community in which it's located and which it supports to assess a building's contribution to the locality. This should contribute to an asset's longer term investment credentials.
However the opportunity for community engagement is dependent upon the type of asset and how it and its users relate to the local community. For example with a shopping centre there may be communications to help determine local attitudes to the centre, amenity, safety and security, access and open space as well as support opportunities for recruitment. In contrast for a fully let office building there may be more limited scope for community involvement and examples include sponsorship for a street festival and a youth centre.
